New Orleans Public Library to extend service hours

For the first time, multiple libraries in New Orleans will be open seven days a week. 

Several libraries will be open seven days a week in New Orleans starting Monday, Jan. 3.

Multiple libraries open seven days a week for the first time in its history, as well as other locations open six days a week. Right now, there are no libraries open on Sundays and only three locations are open on Fridays.

The extended library service hours were made possible by the passage of the 25-year, 2.5 mill increase dedicated to the New Orleans Public Library according to The New Orleans Public Library Foundation.
