New DC Public Library Hours Take Effect Monday

Beginning Monday, Oct. 5, the DC Public Library’s hours will change at all locations.   

Library service will continue to be offered seven days a week. The hour changes include:

Neighborhood Libraries

  • Closed on Sundays beginning Oct. 11.

Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library

  • Open on Sundays from 1p.m. – 5 p.m. all year long
  • Closed on Monday and Tuesday mornings, opening instead from noon – 9 p.m.

The library’s hours changed in order to operate within the District’s FY2010 budget, which was reduced by nearly 11%, or $4.8 million, from the FY2009 budget.
