Hardwood Creek Library’s Monday hours to return in 2013

The Washington County Board of Commissioners authorized new 2013 library hours at its Oct. 2 meeting, in preparation for approval of the 2013 budget. Budget reductions in 2012 closed all Washington County Library branches Sunday and Monday. The plan for 2013 is to open the Hardwood Creek Library in Forest Lake from 9:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Mondays next year.
