Teton County Library summer

Teton County Library

Teton County Library is looking to mix up its weekend schedule.

Under a proposal approved by the Library Board, the library would stay open longer Saturdays, from 9:30 a.m. until 5 p.m., instead of closing at 2:30 p.m. The library would also close earlier Sundays, opening from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. instead of closing at 6:30 p.m.

As a result, the library would be open for a half hour longer, 64.5 hours instead of 64 hours, each week. The policy change is a result of studying library patron behavior, a release said.

The public is invited to provide feedback on the proposed new hours through July 12 by emailing board@tclib.org. Or library users can voice their opinions at the next Library Board meeting at noon June 20 at the library.

Also available for public comment is a proposed new library policy for acceptable use of security camera surveillance.

Both policies can be read in full at TCLib.org/205/Policies.
