We have been gratified by the overwhelmingly positive response we have received to our new building and the expanded services we are able to offer in it. But, as with any new venture, there are sometimes adjustments to be made to find the best mode of operation. We have listened carefully to the comments of our patrons and are now going to institute a major change in response to public demand, effective Sunday, March 1st.
Our hours will be changing to allow more open time in the evening. This has been a constant request from students preparing for exams, commuters unable to get back to town before our current 7:00 PM closing and patrons wishing to combine other library business with a trip to an evening program. We looked at our data on visits throughout the day and found that usage before 10:00 AM was very light, compared to the demand for more evening hours. Our new weekday hours will be Monday through Thursday 10:00 AM to 8:00 PM and Friday 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM. Saturday hours will remain 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM and Sundays 1:00 to 5:00 PM (during the school year only).
