Patrons of the Los Altos main library may soon benefit from expanded hours. Santa Clara County Library District and North County Library Authority representatives were expected to mull additional evening and weekend hours this month.
It’s a lofty goal – obtain the highest per capita membership in the country – but Santa Clara County Library District data presented in a year-end service report late last month reveals strides toward making it a reality.
Currently, 56 percent of the district population possesses a library card, and during fiscal year 2015-2016, 64 percent of cardholders checked out a book, according to the report, presented at an Oct. 27 library district Joint Powers Authority (JPA) meeting.
