Extended Weekend Hours
We heard you! In our patron survey this summer, a lot of you told us that you wanted more hours on the weekends. As of December 5th, we are now open Fridays and Saturdays from 9am-6pm, and Sundays from 1pm to 6pm. We will be open 71 hours a week to serve you! We hope that you use the hours - the board will re-evaluate the hours in May of 2015 to determine if they are actually useful.

The hours switch is being accomplished by switching staffing schedules and does not cost the library's taxpayers any extra money. For more information, call us at 815-725-1715.
