Beginning September 2012, Queens Library will change its weekday hours of service to open earlier and stay open later into the evenings in order to provide easier access to books for people.

Girl Reading in LibraryBeginning Sept. 10, 2012, Queens Library will introduce new service hours. The new schedule will include evening hours in every library, every Monday to Friday, to make it easier for more people to access the library. Several of the largest libraries will have early morning hours, too. Weekend hours remain unchanged. The schedule is available online at queenslibrary.org/hours or at any library location.

"Queens Library provides critically-needed programs, services and materials. People depend on their library to support education for all ages, use the computers, for job training, healthcare referrals, and so many of their day-to-day information needs. We need to be open when the greatest number of people can be assisted by trained  information professionals," said Queens Library President & CEO Thomas W. Galante, in
announcing the new hours.

To make using the library more convenient, more than a third of Queens' libraries now have 24/7 self-service check ins with more coming online in the near future. Customers may return their books, videos or other library materials any time, day or night. The items are checked in on the spot, so no additional fees accrue. The customer gets a receipt. It is convenient and helps to avoid fees.

Queens Library is an independent, not-for-profit corporation and is not affiliated with any other library. Queens Library serves a population of 2.3 million in one of the most ethnically diverse counties in the U.S. and has among the highest circulations of any public library system in the world.

For more information about programs, services, locations, events and news, visit the Queens Library website at queenslibrary.org or call 718-990-0700.
