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.”


Wood Library currently seeks qualified applicants for part-time information and circulation desk clerks.  Interested persons should contact Circulation Desk Supervisor Carrie Magnan at or by phone at 585.394.1381.


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.
