Library staff\'s creativity finds a way to open branch on Mondays

TribNet is reporting the library staff at Tacoma\'s tiny Kobetich Library were able to open the library on Monday for the first time in years, thanks to a combination of means: volunteering to alter a contract agreement so they could make changes in their own schedules; taking advantage of changes at the Swan Creek Library; and using some end-of-year money left in the library budget.

\"All we know is that if we\'re afraid to do things because of coming budget cuts, then we\'ll always be afraid to do things, because there always seem to be budget cuts coming.\"
