Nevada's public agencies have begun to feel pinch of falling tax revenues.
Henderson libraries say they plan to start closing their doors on Sundays.
Library Director Thomas Fay says move is an attempt save money and ensure adequate staffing on the six days the libraries will remain open.
The library district is facing a $600,000 shortfall, which represents about 7 percent of an annual operating budget of $9 million.
It operates four public libraries in Henderson. They'll start closing on Sundays on February 1st.
The libraries are funded by property, sales and motor vehicle taxes.
