New weekend hours at the Côte Saint-Luc Public Library in 2016

The Côte Saint-Luc Public Library will be changing its hours to 10am to 6pm on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays starting the week of January 4, 2016.

“For decades, Côte Saint-Luc has gone beyond many other municipal libraries by staying open from 10am to 10pm every day of the year,” Acting Mayor Glenn J. Nashen said. “In a continuing effort to provide the best services to most people most of the time, we are modifying the hours because of relatively low usage on some nights. Unfortunately, we do not have limitless resources and we have to make choices.”

To put the weekend hours in context, all other suburban libraries on the island of Montreal close early on weekends.

“The Côte Saint-Luc Public Library is still open 365 days a year which is, to our knowledge, unmatched in the library world,” Acting Mayor Nashen said.

The virtual library remains open 24/7 with online access to eBooks, audio-books, magazines and reference material. Library membership is free for Côte Saint-Luc residents.
