East Parker County Library to extend hours

— Staff Reports

Starting Jan. 7th, EPCL will extend its hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays to 7 p.m. with the intention of serving commuters returning home.

“It’s not going to affect our budget, and it might benefit some patrons who work,” Library Director Sue Ellen Shaw said.

A trial period of evening hours this fall, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursdays, didn’t yield as much traffic as expected, Shaw said, especially during the final hour.

“That’s why we’re dividing it,” she said, “and extending it to 7 p.m. on two nights.”

All other hours will remain the same.
