Daviess County Public Library said Friday that it was reducing its on-site staff and its hours of operation per Kentucky state guidelines.

Typically, the library remains open until 9:00 p.m. throughout the week and for a short time on Sundays.

Now, as of Sunday, Nov. 22, on-site staff at the library at any given time will be reduced to 33%. The library will now operate from 9:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. Monday - Saturday and will be closed on Sundays.

“This change will mean a reduction in in-person programming. We are currently working to make adjustments to alter currently scheduled programs to a virtual platform,” says Tiffani Henry, Public Relations Coordinator, “we encourage patrons to follow us on our social media pages for more up to date information.”

DCPL said these changes would be in effect until at least the end of December.

Sure, yesterday's passing cold front and lingering rainfall made for a cooler-than average, fall-like day across the Tri-State - today on the other hand, was a bit more summer-like. The core of high pressure flowing in behind that cold front has now settled to our east and is actively pumping southerly winds, more heat and gulf humidity back into the Ohio valley. As a result, temperatures pushed back into the mid 80s for the majority of the region; the added humidity even made it feel a few degrees hotter as well. As for the rest of the evening, conditions will remain dry with temperatures gradually falling from 80° around dinnertime into the mid to low 70s by 10PM. The combination of added cloud cover overnight and those aforementioned southerly winds will help keep temperatures mild tonight - we'll only dip as low as 67° early Friday morning in the River City.
