The Close-by Place Where the Books Are

The city’s neighborhood libraries are needed more than they
apparently know

The libraries aren’t open enough here. The old inner-ring Cleveland suburb I lived in for over 25 years keeps these kinds of hours: Monday-Saturday 9:00-9:00, Sunday 1:00-9:00. You do the math. New York’s not even close. You wouldn’t think.

My neighborhood library is a great resource for me. I order books frequently. And it’s two blocks away. I’d love for it to be open at 9:00 every day, and till 9:00 every night, even Sunday night. That would be great. Think how students could use such hours. You’d go, if you knew such hours existed.

I wonder why New York is so puny about library hours. Did you realize it was?
