Two Hundred Fifty Nine Thousand Two Hundred Seconds

NewHoursPromo

Beginning Monday, October 6, the library will experiment with a little hour embiggening. Through November 13, we’ll be open 8 AM to 8 PM, Monday through Thursday, with Friday and Saturday hours remaining unchanged. That’s three extra hours of library time for the people each day. Depending on public response, at the end of the pilot period, the Library Board will decide whether to permanently adjust service hours. So, if you’re jazzed by the prospect of having more library in your life, show your love during these upcoming 72 extra open hours (259,200 seconds). To inspire you to do just that, I’ve composed a song that should be read to the tune of “Seasons of Love” from Rent. Enjoy.

Two hundred fifty nine thousand two hundred seconds;
That’s four thousand three hundred twenty minutes, my friend.
Two hundred fifty nine thousand two hundred seconds
Of extra time with our pilot program.
Come Monday, we’re open-
-ing at 8, so have some coffee
While reading the paper or browsing the shelves.
For seven thousand two hundred quit serene extra seconds,
You early risers get the place to yourselves.

 
We hope you love (the new hours)
We hope you love (the new hours)
And if you love (the new hours)
Show us your love
Show us your love
Show us your love

 
Two hundred fifty nine thousand two hundred seconds.
Seventy two extra hours of open-age, man.
Two hundred fifty nine thousand two hundred seconds.
Come in and enjoy the pilot program.
If night is your time,
You’re covered, as well;
We’re open ‘til 8
So night owls, revel!
For six weeks, we’ll try this
And then it’s at an end.
But if you really dig it, our hours just may stay extend…ed!

 
We hope you love (the new hours)
We hope you love (the new hours)
And if you love (the new hours)
Show us your love
Show us your love
Show us your love
