Central Library Open on Mondays

For those weary of yet another grim story of budget cuts coming to a neighborhood or public institution near you, take heart. Beginning February 8 the downtown Central Library in Minneapolis will be open on Mondays. In honor of the ballpark stadium tax that is funding these expanded hours, they'll be called Ballpark Mondays - and as we learn from KFAI's Ann Alquist, it's a unique financing model that is keeping libraries all around Hennepin County open and accessible at a time when advocates and policymakers say the public needs them most.
