The library has expanded its weekend hours, remaining open until 8 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays, and opening the library an hour earlier, at 11 a.m., on Sundays.
The pilot program, scheduled to run through the end of 2016, will extend weekend hours based upon a recent survey of library customers which indicated many residents wished the library offered more hours on the weekends. Use of the library during these times will then be evaluated before 2017 hours are set.
"These expanded hours stem from the fact that people's lives are busier than ever, and we want to make it as convenient as possible for them to visit the library," said Executive Director Jason Kuhl.
The $125,000 pilot program, which began on March 19, was approved as part of the library’s 2016 budget to provide extra funding to staff the library.
