Instead of adding staff how about cut some services. A library is supposed to be a place where books are stored for use by citizens for reference and entertainment. Why have libraries morfed into some sudo educational facility? Stick to your book inventory and cut out all the crap.
KEEP IT SIMPLE.

Of course, libraries are more than a place where books are stored. Children are guided to better citizenship and learn to communicate by visiting and taking part in their local institution. Seniors can participate and improve themselves as well, particularly at the Lady Lake facility where I personally observe the many activities and take an art lesson myself.

Sounds like you need to result to what OUR county is doing: volunteerism.

These days, if you want a job as a librarian, especially in decent size libraries, you have to have a special education for it and that costs money. If you DO get the job, it doesn't pay much. It's not designed to be a living job.

When money is tight; you get volunteers, or you cut hours of operation.
