County Public Libraries to Have New Branch Hours Beginning Sunday, Jan. 24

Montgomery County Public Libraries will temporarily reduce their hours of service to 48 hours weekly beginning Sunday, Jan. 24. There will no longer be service on Sundays. All branches will be open eight hours on other days.

The branches will be open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and noon to 8 p.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. The Noyes Library will remain closed.

“The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic unfortunately requires us to make this decision,” said MCPL Director Anita Vassallo. “I hope that we will be able to begin to restore our operating hours as the situation improves over the course of the year.”

MCPL’s contactless holds pickup service “Holds to Go!” will operate during the new hours. The hours adjustments will make it possible to continue Holds to Go! at all branches.

Virtual services can take place outside of the new branch hours. Digital services will continue to be available 24/7.
