Libraries opening Sundays

Wednesday, August 17, 2022 by Tai Moses

Oh joy! The readers among us are elated to hear that Sunday library hours are returning. Starting Sept. 11, six Austin Public Library locations – the Central Library, Austin History Center, and the Little Walnut Creek, Manchaca Road, Ruiz and Spicewood Springs branches – will be flinging open their doors from noon to 5 p.m. on Sundays for the first time since the start of the pandemic. As library chief Roosevelt Weeks said in a press release, “We are thrilled that we will be able to return to providing library services to the Austin community seven days a week. We know that many in the community appreciated the convenience of being able to access their libraries on Sundays, and I am pleased that we have the capacity to bring back this service.” You can find all Austin library locations and hours here.
