There is not plan to increase book agency services, but will work on plan and service counter in the city hall setting up book return box from place as of A2, financial status of Yokohama-shi newly at station for enhancement of library service that is familiar to in future citizen's, and is convenient.
In A3 City Library, we were doing opening time conventionally with (only on Friday until 7:00 p.m.) from 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. In April, 1987, we extended opening time from Tuesday to Thursday until 7:00 p.m. and, in April, 2000, carried out extension (in closing time from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30) for opening time of the opening and Chuo-toshokan on weekdays on holiday of all the buildings. In addition, Yamauchi library did extension (in closing time from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30) with administration start by designated manager for opening time from April, 2010.
Furthermore, we abolished closed days of weekly Monday till then, and, from December, 2001, it was said with having no days off except New Year holidays and closed days for monthly facility check and special rearranging of annual book.
There are extension of opening time and further extended request of the opening day, but consciousness for energy bills to suffer from the opening in one has indication to be thin, and, as for the plan of extension, there are none now for expansion and opening time on these opening day.

In A6 Yokohama City Library, we assume reservation reception desk number of books rental number of books and six books of the same number. When there is reservation book more than rental number of books when all the books that this made a reservation can prepare, also, it says with rental number of books and the same number concerned about not being able to put in yoyakutoriokitana to do accumulation of freight that there remains as torioki without being able to loan, and book does accumulation of freight, and offer to the next subscriber is late.
For such situation, it is difficult to increase the upper limits of reservation number of books.
About A7 rental number of books, reservation number of books, we have various opinions, but say to six so that many people can use book you like smoothly as much as possible. Because the situation to keep in hope of the same book waiting is accelerated while by increasing numbers of books of reservation and rental, convenience increases, this is because we are thinking about balance.
