Staffing Challenges Postpone Library’s Planned Sunday Hours

(Canandaigua, NY) – On Monday, January 3, 2022, Wood Library Executive Director Jenny Goodemote announced that a planned reintroduction of Sunday hours at Wood Library will be postponed.  “We have the same staffing challenges as other local public-facing businesses and organizations at this time.  Regretfully, we have not been able to attract applicants for open entry-level positions.”

In May 2021, Canandaigua City School District voters approved an increase in community-based funding that included resources to reopen the library on Sunday afternoons, starting in January 2022.
