Your library is back

Wednesday, March 23, 2022 by Tai Moses

After two years of reduced hours and capacity courtesy of Covid-19, the Austin Public Library is back, baby. Starting Monday, March 28, the library will be expanding its open hours for all branches. APL Director Roosevelt Weeks said in a news release, “We know that the community has missed being able to more easily visit their neighborhood libraries over the past two years. Your libraries have missed you as well. We are excited to be able to expand access to our locations to ensure that more people in our community are able to safely access information and resources.” With the expanded hours comes the return of in-person events and programming at the libraries. Also effective March 28, Recycled Reads will be adding Wednesday to its list of open days. Find a complete list of branch hours of operation here.
