Visiting a Long Beach library on a Sunday just became easier. The El Dorado Neighborhood Library will add new hours starting this Sunday, December 4, the city announced today.
The library will be open from 12:00PM to 4:00PM, making it the fourth to feature Sunday hours, along with the Bay Shore, Burnett and Michelle Obama neighborhood libraries.
“The El Dorado Neighborhood Library is truly a cherished community asset, valued by all neighbors," said Councilmember Stacy Mungo in a statement. “The newest addition of Sunday hours is important for our youth, families and seniors."
The Main Library at the Long Beach Civic Center also extended their hours from 7:00PM to 8:00PM on Thursday nights as a part of the Long Beach City Council’s fiscal year budget to approve new library hours, according to the release.
Mayor Robert Garcia said libraries are vital community centers for people of all ages to access new technologies and career support. The new hours will increase the access residents have to the library.
The library served more than 108,000 people and about 130,000 materials were checked out last year, according to Glenda Williams, director of library services.
