Summer 2009 Library Hours

Filed under: General Interest by Deb Cleveland at 8:57 pm on July 27, 2009

FRAMINGHAM, MA - As in summer's past, the Framingham Public Library and the McAuliffe Branch are modifying their hours during July and August.

McAuliffe Library is open Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Fridays 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. and is closed Saturdays and Sundays. NOTE: McAuliffe is never open on Sundays during the school year.

The main library is open Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. until noon. Closed on Sundays until October 4th, 2009.

This is not the first time that the main library has curtailed the Saturday hours during the summer. Some patrons may remember summers when the library closed at 1 p.m. on Saturdays. Usually the main library reopens on Sundays after Labor Day, but due to budget restraints, Saturday hours were reduced and the date for resumption of Sunday afternoon hours was pushed back.

On Friday, August 7th, both libraries will be open from 9 a.m. to 12:3 p.m. They are closing early for staff development. Visit www.framinghamlibrary.org for more info.
