The four City of San Bernardino Public Library locations will see branch library hours double from 20 to 40 weekly hours and Feldheym Central Library will return to a full day of Saturday service starting Monday, Oct. 18.
All locations will then operate on the same schedule offering 40 hours of weekly service.
The schedule for Feldheym Central Library (555 W. Sixth St.,) Inghram (1505 W. Highland Ave.,) Rowe (108 E. Marshall Blvd.,) and Villaseñor (525 N. Mt. Vernon Ave.) is scheduled to be as follows:
Monday & Tuesday: Noon to 8 p.m.
Wednesday & Thursdays: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Saturday: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
“This is a great achievement in our city to be able to offer increased library hours to our patrons pursuing their educational, cultural and literary pursuits,” said SBPL Director Ed Erjavek. “Thanks goes to the Mayor and City Council for approving increased funding in the Library’s Fiscal Year 21-22 budget to add staffing to make this possible. The leadership and support for library service from City Manager Rob Field and Assistant City Manager Eddie Eveland and the Library Board of Trustees have also been instrumental in this accomplishment. Our staff is also working hard to prepare for these expanded hours.”
Information about library programs and activities and various online services are available at the library’s website at www.sbpl.org or 909-381-8201.
