Beginning next month, Village Library in Vandenberg Village will only be open four days a week.

The library will be closed Saturdays as of July 6, a change the City says “was deemed necessary as funding had run out from a generous, anonymous donor whose contribution enabled the Village Library to stay open on Saturdays for several years.”

The library will still be open Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Thursdays and Fridays from noon to 6 p.m.

The library is fully funded to be open 24 hours a week through the County of Santa Barbara.

The City says donations to the Village Library have recently decreased, leading to the decision to close the library for the four hours it was open on Saturdays.
