NEW open hours for 2019

new 2019 open clockStarting on Monday, January 7, 2019, Burlington residents will have library hours that fit their life.

Responding to community input during the Library’s 2016-2020 planning cycle, Burlington Public Library Board put better library open hours as a top priority.

"During our conversations, we heard how much everyone loves their library but would like different hours," says Brian Kenny, Chair, Burlington Public Library Board. "So, we made a commitment to find out what hours our customers want and make it happen."

Earlier in 2018, library staff reviewed customer use patterns and borrowing trends, and examined the library service hours of neighbouring and comparable libraries and cities. The community was consulted by way of a public survey that resulted in input from 2,661 Burlington residents about their preferred library hours of operation.

Kenny notes that residents clearly want more locations to be open Sundays and evenings.

"We are so pleased to be able to start off the new year with library service hours that reflect our community’s preferences," says Kenny. "And it’s a gratifying legacy of our volunteer Board as we wrap up our four-year term representing the voice of local citizens."
