… Changes in the public hours at the Society’s headquarters at 1508 High Ridge Road [will] begin July 1. The Society’s research library and exhibit galleries will now be open Thursdays and Fridays from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM, and on Saturdays from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM throughout the year.
“Like many non-profit organizations, the Society has been hard hit by reduced financial support in these difficult economic times,“ continued Coleman. “Unfortunately, the City of Stamford, our primary backer since we are the municipal historian for the City, has had to make significant cuts to outside agencies including ours. We are looking at every way to conserve our resources without jeopardizing our services to the Stamford community. So we have expanded our hours on our usually busiest days, and cut hours on those days when we have fewer visitors.”
To recap, hours are:
- Thursdays 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM
- Fridays 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM
- Saturdays 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM
(closed on Saturday, July 3 for the holiday weekend)
