It seems like all the news about our public libraries is negative these days, so here’s something to brighten up your fall: Beginning Sept. 10, Brooklyn Public Library locations will be expanding their hours and adding days. More than half of the libraries will be open six days a week, and the library is increasing average weekly hours by more than eight hours per library. For example, the Brooklyn Heights library will now be open from 10am-8pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, instead of opening at 1pm; while the library over in Clinton Hill will now be open Mondays from 10-6 instead of being closed. Each branch is different so check the full list here. Don’t forget: your library doubles as a sweet-ass discount card too!
