AUSTIN, Texas — Beginning September 11, six local libraries will open on Sundays — something not seen since Austin Public Library Forced to make changes due to pandemic in 2020.
The central library, four branch libraries and the Austin History Center will soon be open to the public on Sundays from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.
“We are pleased to return to providing library services to the Austin community seven days a week,” said Roosevelt Weeks, director of the Austin Public Library. “We know that many in the community value the convenience of being able to access their libraries on Sundays, and I’m pleased that we have the capacity to bring that service back.”
The Austin Public Library said it has gradually expanded its service and hours since in-person services closed due to COVID-19. Before the pandemic, many locations offered Sunday classes. However, when the library expanded its services in March 2022, the Sunday hours could not be restored due to staff shortages.
