BPL Trustees Approve Amended FY12 Budget

by Sean Nelson

The Boston Public Library Trustees voted on Tuesday, August 2nd to approve the amended FY12 budget.  The amended FY12 budget reflects the additional funds in the state’s conference budget designated for The Boston Public Library under the newly-named Library for the Commonwealth (formerly the “Library of Last Recourse”).  With the vote, the BPL Trustees reinstated Sunday hours at the Central Library in Copley Square from October 2011 through May 2012.

Sunday hours will be restored to last year’s schedule with the Central Library being open 1-5 p.m. on Sundays, October through May, with exceptions for Sundays preceding Monday holidays.
