More good October 1st news from the DC Library:

“Starting Oct. 1, all DC Public Library locations will be open on Sundays and until 9 p.m. four nights a week. The District’s fiscal year 2014 budget increased the library’s budget by 25 percent, restoring library hours citywide for the first time since 2009 when a budget cuts ended Sunday hours at neighborhood libraries and reduced hours citywide.

The new hours will be:

Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library
Sunday: 1 p.m. – 5 p.m.
Monday: 9:30 a.m. – 9 p.m.
Tuesday: 9:30 a.m. – 9 p.m.
Wednesday: 9:30 a.m. – 9 p.m.
Thursday: 9:30 a.m. – 9 p.m.
Friday: 9:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
Saturday: 9:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.

Neighborhood libraries
Sunday: 1 p.m. – 5 p.m.
Monday: 9:30 a.m. – 9 p.m.
Tuesday: 9:30 a.m. – 9 p.m.
Wednesday: 9:30 a.m. – 9 p.m.
Thursday: 1 p.m. – 9 p.m.
Friday: 9:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.

  • I love love love that this is what DC is doing with their budget surplus. Seriously love.

  • I love this too. Now if I can just figure out how to get them to install comfier chairs in the branch near me, I’ll study there all the time! Or maybe the wooden chairs they have aren’t as bad as they appear – I guess I’ll find out soon.

    I was just looking at the library website and the “Rules of Behavior” are very… specific. Among the highlights are: no sexy time in the stacks, no unattended children, and if other people are disturbed by the way you smell, you will be asked to leave!
