Class timings - not conducive for working parents

Am I the only one - or are there more parents who feel that the working parents are singled out by the classes offered by the city? Most of the classes (I stress - most, not all) offered by the City for the kids are in the morning or early afternoon. Someone has posted a link to the PA Library blog on this site - there are fun events (lizards coming in, stories for the Toddlers) - but all are either around 11am or prior to 4pm !!
The timings of the classes offered through PAEnjoy have always baffled me ! Do most people think that just because the working parent's kid's are in the full time day care or after school care - they don't need any other interaction?
Wouldn't it be fun to have a story time class for the toddlers around 7pm (after dinner) - or - don't you think the elementary kids would enjoy an event around the same time?
Yes, as working parent's we are time challenged - but when I see the catalogs - makes me wonder if the society is making this even more challenging?
