Why is the library closed on weekends?

The City of Safford has been on a 4 day/10 hour work schedule since 2011 as a necessity to save on utilities in all buildings. Financial times have been optimistic, but have not fully recovered from the 2008-2009 Economic Crisis and its subsequent ripple effect felt in rural communities across the United States. The library would love to be open on weekends for our community, but unfortunately cannot make this feasible without further staffing. For economic reasons listed above, further staffing is not currently a possibility. We thank all our patrons and Safford citizens for their patience and understanding in this.
