New library opening hours will commence from Monday 2 December 2013, Director, Libraries ACT, Vanessa Little, announced today.
“We’ve had a look at usage patterns across our nine ACT public library branches, as well as the growing use of Libraries ACT’s online resources. The new opening hours will take into account current demand and focus resources in the libraries where they will be most effective,” Ms Little said.
“The three busiest libraries – Dickson, Gungahlin and Woden – will all still open until 8 pm one night a week, while Belconnen, Civic, Erindale, Kingston, Kippax and Tuggeranong will all close at 5.30 pm on weekdays.
“All libraries will close at 4 pm on Saturdays, rather than 5.30 pm. Library hours will remain the same on Sundays. There will be no loss of permanent staff in the changes.
