ELKHART — The hours for all Elkhart Public Library locations are changing Monday, June 7, to bring more consistency and longer opening hours to the public.
Beginning Monday, June 7, the new hours will be Monday-Thursday 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Friday 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
As part of the library’s strategic plan, a survey about open hours was conducted last year and after public input, the new hours are streamlined across all locations for consistency, as well as extending hours on most evenings and Saturdays.
The most commonly requested change, according to the survey, was more Saturday hours. Data collected from door traffic was also used to determine the busiest and least busy times.
The new hours reflect this data with an additional two hours of open time on Saturday and an additional evening hour on most weeknights.
Curbside pickup will continue to be available during all open hours as well.
The Dunlap and Cleveland branches continue to be closed for renovations.
