    I worked at Contra Costa County Library full-time


    some of the branches are well-run and good places to visit. These are in more affluent cities like Lafayette, Orinda, Moraga, and Walnut Creek.


    many branches are poorly funded and they do not receive extra money from Friends groups. Branches in San Pablo and Pleasant Hill are ugly and depressing. Staffing levels are low and people are too stressed to provide decent service. Books don't get checked in correctly and you will be fined even if you return on time, or you will spend time calling and trying to get your account corrected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time on improving existing library services such as a better catalog and more efficient checkout and returns, and more open hours. Spend less time on providing free museum visits to well-off people who live in Moraga.
