New Hours of Operation Starting May 1, 2019
Effective May 1, 2019, the Hopkinsville-Christian County Public Library (HCCPL) will implement new hours of operation. The new hours will be:
* Monday-Friday: 9:30 a.m. – 6:30 p.m.
* Saturday: 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
* Sunday: Closed
DeeAnna Sova, HCCPL Executive Director, explained, “This change comes as an effort to have consistent hours for patrons.” Programming for weekly events will be adjusted to reflect the new hours. Check-outs at HCCPL average over 9600 items monthly, including books, audiobooks, and DVDs. Monthly patron visits continue to grow with the average for the 2018/19 fiscal year being 13,300.
“The continued growth of youth and adult program participation has increased 59% over the 2017/18 fiscal year,” said Ms. Sova, “The library staff are bringing informative and entertaining programs for the community. Through creative programming, along with the growth and development of the collection, we have continued to see a rise in patron visits. We hope the implementation of consistent hours will make it easier for the community to utilize our services without having to remember what time the library opens and closes on any given day.” HCCPL hopes that the hours can be expanded in the future as the need continues to grow.
