RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Chesterfield residents will start seeing the effects of the budget cuts in their neighborhood libraries.
Beginning Thursday, all library branches except Central Library will be closed Thursdays.
The Central Library will be open from 1 to 9 p.m. Thursdays.
All branches will close 30 minutes earlier on Friday and Saturdays, at 5 p.m.
There was a $1.4 million reduction in local library funding.
That 17 percent cut, was the county's deepest cut of all of its departments.
