Library restores weekend, weeknight hours

Posted: Updated:
TOLEDO, Ohio -

Good news for patrons of the Toledo Lucas County Public Library. When voters said yes to a levy back in November, the library promised to restore the weeknight and weekend hours that were slashed a few years ago due to a tight budget. Now it's happening.

Sunday hours returned to some locations in early January, now beginning Monday February 4, even more library locations will have expanded weeknight and weekend hours.

"We continue to keep the promises we made during the levy, we are more thrilled to announce these additional weekly and Saturday hours for our customers," said Library Director Clyde Scoles.  "Because of the support of Lucas County residents, our system will remain a valuable, educational resource for children, job seekers and those wanting to preserve our local memory."
