Life for readers in Montgomery County, Maryland, who prefer hard copies of books has just gotten a little easier – a press release says public libraries in the county are expanding their hours of operation starting in January.

“Our libraries are essential gathering epicenters in our communities where many residents depend not only on access to books, but also the Internet,” Montgomery County Director Marc Elrich said in a press release.



With the exception of two branches – Maggie Nightingale (Poolesville), which is currently closed, and Noyes Library for Young Children – all libraries will be expanding their services to the following times on January 2:

  • Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
  • Friday, Saturday, Sunday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

“One of my highest priorities is working to provide equitable service to members of our community,” Libraries Director Anita Vassallo said in a press release. “By equalizing and restoring hours in all our branches, we are taking a big step forward in the pursuit of this mission. “
