Beginning Saturday, Dec. 1, library hours at the Southside Branch, 6599 Jaguar Drive, will be extended. The Southside Branch will be open Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m. and on Fridays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.
These new, longer hours will give families and school classes more opportunities to visit the branch earlier in the day and give students more time to do their homework at the library in the evening.
The Santa Fe Public Library system has also changed loan periods for their materials.
New Books are now checked out for 14 days, instead of seven, Audio books and music CDs are also loaned for 14 days.
Patrons may checkout four DVDs or Videos (4 total) for seven days.
These changes were made to better serve our patrons’ need for longer checkout times. And anyone who checked out the latest Harry Potter and saw they only had 7 days was frustrated—or read reallllly fast!
