Although the center will remain open seven days a week, new public hours will be 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Monday-Friday and noon-5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. The center had been open from 9 a.m.-11 p.m. weekdays and 11 a.m.-7 p.m. weekends.
The organization last cut hours in 2010 and center executive director Chris Bartlett said the move is due to funding.
“It is mainly due to a decrease in funding for the center,” he said. “Right now, we are seeing what we can do with volunteers and trying to bring in more volunteers, but we are focused on keeping and making good use of the new hours.”
All programs will remain in operation but, due to the change in facility hours, program hours are likely to change.
“No programs will be cut and nothing will be condensed,” Bartlett said. “We’re just going to shift hours of programs.”
