Norwalk Easter Public Library will now be open seven days a week. Starting Oct. 1, the library is adjusting its hours of operation to align with patron usage. We have been surveying how we can best fit the needs of our community over the last year. After reviewing our circulation statistics and hourly usage, we have decided to adjust our hours. In October, the library hours will become Monday through Thursday 10 a.m. – 8 p.m.. Fridays we will open at 11 a.m. and stay open until 6 p.m. Saturdays will also slightly adjust to opening again at 10 a.m. instead of the 9:30 open time we have been doing for the last year. Finally, our biggest change is we will now be open year-round on Sundays from 1-4 p.m. We are excited about being able to offer more hours of service to our community.
As we have been looking to improve our hours of service, we have also reviewed how we can make the library more accessible. One of the ways we identified was to complete the sidewalk from Cherry Parkway through Brownie Park. We want to say a big thank you to Warren County Philanthropic Partnership for the grant money to purchase materials to complete the sidewalk. We also want to thank Norwalk Public Works for doing the work to get the sidewalk completed. Finally, we want to thank Norwalk Parks and Recreation for allowing us to put a sidewalk through Brownie Park to give better access to the library. We are proud of the sidewalk and hope that many individuals are able to use it!
Trick or treat!
We would like to invite community members to attend our Trick or Treat @ Your library on Thursday, Oct. 23, from 5-7 p.m. You will have an opportunity to play some games, complete a fun craft project and even get a fun treat. After all the fun trick or treat activities, we will have a fun Halloween Pajama Storytime at 7 p.m.
As you can tell, there is a lot going on at your local library these days. We are looking forward to seeing lots of you at these events and many others in the future. Please watch our website and our Facebook page for updates. If you have ideas of other activities you would like to see at your library, we encourage you to share them.
