DC public libraries to expand hours in November

D.C.’s public libraries will expand their hours in November, returning to their normal schedule before the pandemic began.

The D.C. Public Library system is adding 15 more hours to its neighborhood libraries starting Monday, Nov. 14, giving visitors more time to take advantage of library services in mornings and evenings.

“These added hours will give you more time to pick up books after work, make it easier to reserve a room for community meetings, provide more opportunities to build your skills with workshops and so much more,” DCPL said in a news release.
