Also expanding hours on Mondays through Wednesdays
SANTA CLARA COUNTY, CALIF. –November 8, 2018– Another Santa Clara County Library District (SCCLD) library will soon be open on Sundays, responding to community requests for additional service hours, particularly on the weekend. Effective the week of Monday, December 3, Morgan Hill Library will be opening at 12 pm Monday through Wednesday, and will offer Sunday hours for the first time, from 1 to 5 pm.
“This has been a goal of the Morgan Hill community for many years,” said County Librarian Nancy Howe. “I am so happy to be able to offer library services in South County on Sunday.”
SCCLD has enacted these changes in response to a customer satisfaction survey on library hours. The additional open hours of service reflect the preferences expressed by their local communities and will provide residents more opportunities to visit the library and access services at times that are convenient to them.
“This is great news for Morgan Hill residents with long commutes to and from work during the week,” said County Supervisor and Library Joint Powers Authority Board Chairman Mike Wasserman. “Now residents have the opportunity to visit the library on Sunday to check out a book, pick up a movie, or meet up with friends.
Morgan Hill Library will celebrate the additional hours of service with a special performance by Germar the Magician on Sunday, December 9 at 2 pm. Visit www.sccl.org for more information about the schedules for all of our locations and our full schedule of events.
