Norfolk, VA (July 2, 2010) In order to provide essential library services to the public in light of recent city budget reductions, all branch libraries for Norfolk Public Library will be closed on Sundays and Mondays, beginning July 6, 2010. Norfolk Main Library and the Mary D. Pretlow Anchor Branch Library will keep their current schedule of library service seven days a week.
The change in library hours at the branches will allow library staff to continue to provide core library services five days a week. A benefit of this change is that all NPL branches will now have the same hours of operation, thus eliminating any confusion as to when the branches are open. The new schedule will also increase the number of evening hours of service.
The new schedule for Norfolk Public Library appears below. For more information about the services and programs at all NPL locations, please call 664-7328 or go to www.npl.lib.va.us.
