The new hours will be 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays and noon to 5 p.m. Sundays. The library is currently open noon to 4 p.m. both days.
“This is something the patrons have told us they wanted and something our Board of Trustees and staff have wanted us to do for a long time,” said Library Director Bette Ammon. “We know how much the community depends on the library and not everyone can get here during the week.”
She also noted that Coeur d’Alene Mayor Steve Widmyer and members of the City Council had expressed interest in seeing the library’s weekend hours extended.
“I’m thrilled that we were able to work out a plan to extend weekend library hours, making it even more convenient for citizens to enjoy the facility and all it has to offer,” Widmyer said.
The weekday hours remain the same: Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Patrons who need accommodation to participate in library programs or services are asked to contact the staff prior to the activity by calling 208-769-2315.
