I wish the River Grove Public LIbrary would be open on Sundays. How can we get that to happen?

talk to the director and the trustees. I think the trustees have the final say.. they have to see if it is within the budget.. because then they have to pay someone to work on Sunday. I personally would love to go to the library on Sunday. There is nothing to do in River Grove on Sundays.. if there is no game. I am busy during the week so I dont go to the library. I hear computers are nice.

By paying more taxes. You don't pay enough now, right?

you dont have to pay more taxes. All is needed is to have the schedule changed. Not many people go to the library on Friday so decrease hours on Friday and add them to Sunday.. Just a couple of hours. And only during the school year. Taxes do not have to be increased.

Even better, why dont we just close that library altogether. No one uses it.. that will save taxpayers a lot of money.

Yeah, smart comment there Bill. My guess is that you don't step foot into a library and you do not see the children playing, reading, taking out movies .... You do not see the young adults who come to the library because it is a safe place where they can use the material (computers, electronics, and yes, even books sometimes). And, adults do enter the library. Seniors, mothers, families ....
But hey, I am glad you used your head for your comment.

many people have multiple part time jobs ....just to make ends meet. Sunday is the only day off to spend with family.

there is absolutely nothing to do in RG on Sundays.
