Responding to the community's request for increased library service, the Newark Library is pleased to announce new hours of service on Sundays. Beginning on September 11, 2016, the Library will be open on Sundays from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Funding provided by the City of Newark enables the Library to add hours of service on Sundays. The Library will hold a celebration on Sunday, September 11, 2016 from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., which will include a magic show and balloon art for the whole family.
Carmen Martinez, Interim County Librarian said, “The residents of Newark are fortunate to have a City Council that is committed to library service. Sunday service opens up so many opportunities for Newark’s community.”
“Adding library service on Sundays accommodates working parents and their children, working adults, and other patrons who cannot visit the Library during weekdays,” said Adina Aguirre, Branch Manager.
The Newark Library, a branch of the Alameda County Library system, circulated nearly 365,000 materials last year and more than 25,000 people participated in its programs. The Library will be exploring new programs to offer during added hours of service on Sundays.
