Peachtree City Library Users Choose Seasonal Hours

Peachtree City Library has released the results of its Library Hours Survey. A total of 776 people answered the survey that ran from June 3 – June 17: 257 (or 33.1%) voted to keep the current reduced hours; 167 (or 21.5%) voted to close on Wednesdays; 352 (45.4%) voted for “seasonal hours.”

Peachtree City’s Library Administrator, Jill Prouty, reported the results to City Council at their June 18 meeting. The new fall hours will begin the first day of school for Fayette County students, August 10. The new schedule will be as follows: Monday-Thursday, 10 a.m. – 9 p.m.; Friday & Saturday, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.; and Sunday, 1 p.m. – 5 p.m.

“The later weekday hours should please our local students who need extra time in the evening to complete their assignments.” said Prouty. “I think our Wednesday users will also appreciate the consistency of the new schedule.” Presently, the library limits Wednesday hours to 12 p.m. - 6 p.m., which many library users have found confusing.

According to Prouty, the idea behind “seasonal hours” was to accommodate the needs of local students by opening later and closing later during the school year. Summer hours, which will begin next year, feature earlier hours for Vacation Reading Program participants as well as an earlier closing time.

Summer hours, which will begin next year on June 1, 2010, will be as follows: Monday-Thursday, 9 a.m. – 7 p.m.; Friday & Saturday, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.; Sunday, 1 p.m. – 5 p.m.
