ORL cuts assistant librarian hours in Revelsoke

The Okanagan Regional Library Board is cutting assistant-level librarian time in Revelstoke by eight hours a week, while increasing student page time by two hours a week.

“Due to attrition, the staffing-level target for Revelstoke has already been reached, and no further action is anticipated at this time,” said a statement from the ORL headquarters in Kelowna.

“For Revelstoke, the impact on branch service will be that staff are busier, but it will not result in a loss of open hours.”

Hours were cut in other library branches as well.

Comments and questions about this plan can be sent to Michele Rule, Communications Manager, by e-mail at mrule@orl.bc.ca or by phone at 250-861-8033, ext 2456. An on-line survey is also available at http://fluidsurveys.com/surveys/orl/what-the-library-means-to-me/.
