IMMEDIATE ACTION NEEDED: Please show support for our library at Town Hall Budget Meeting on Feb 1, 2020

The City of El Cerrito is facing serious financial problems. Because of these problems, the City has undertaken an “everything’s on the table” review of the city’s finances leading up to the 2020 – 22 budget that starts July 1.

This review will include a series of Town Hall Budget meetings to gain an understanding of what services and programs are most important to El Cerrito residents and what cuts will be made to balance the budget. The attachment below has information about the next Town Hall meeting which is on Saturday, February 1, from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM in the City Hall Council Chambers, 10890 San Pablo Avenue.

The extended hours at our library, are at serious risk of being cut back to the bare minimum provided by the County. Our library needs your help.

Everyone who has  benefitted from the expanded seven-day- per-week service and the significant increase in variety and number of programs for all age groups made possible by the expanded hours of operation, needs to attend this Saturday’s meeting and let your opinion be known.

Thank you for your support of strong library services in El Cerrito.
