I'm glad that the Clear Lake

I'm glad that the Clear Lake location has been able to maintain its hours. I am there every evening to attend programs and look for permanent work as I work temp jobs during the day. This location has been especially needed since the Seabrook location is closed until the rebuild is complete.

Seriously? these are terrible

Seriously? these are terrible hours. wednesday closed now... its summer. kids read MORE during the summer, and now hours are cut, days are cut too? pathetic. absolutely pathetic. whats the point of a new library if you cant even go to it?

I agree, these hours of

I agree, these hours of operation are unacceptable. I have yet been able to visit the new Kingwood branch due to the fact that it is 1 of 2 locations that are closed 2 days a week and does not open until 1:00 pm on 2 of the other days. The previous post is absolutely right, this is summer and the library should be offering more hours of operation. Also noted at the new Kingwood branch is that the hours of operation are posted on a small sign near the front door. With the location being set back on a side street, one has to park and walk up only to be disappointed. It's a shame that the community has advertised a new branch only to disappoint people by offering these horrible hours.

As soon as we receive

As soon as we receive funding, we will hire the additional staff needed for the Kingwood Library and the hours will be expanded.  For now, we felt it was important to retain Saturday hours for working families, so hours were reduced at the library's least active times.
