The Monterey Park Bruggemeyer Library is pleased to announce that, beginning September 11, 2023, Mondays will be added as an additional full day of service and the Library will be open six days per week to the public. The Library’s new hours will be Monday and Tuesday, 12:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
During the Library’s recent strategic planning process, community members reaffirmed that their top priority was more hours. One of the Library’s strategic imperatives is to improve access, making it easier and more convenient for everyone to use the Library and take advantage of the services and resources that it has to offer.
“The support of the Monterey Park City Council and Library Board of Trustees was integral to expanding the Library’s days of service and highlights their recognition of the Library as an essential community resource,” says Interim City Librarian Kristin Olivarez. “The Library is proud to be able to address the community’s need by expanding its hours.”
“With an added day of service each week, it will be easier than ever to access the rich variety of resources available at the Monterey Park Bruggemeyer Library,” adds Library Board of Trustees President Travis Kaya. “We are grateful to the Library staff for their continued efforts to make the Library accessible to all in our community.”
The community is invited to celebrate the expansion of service hours with the Library on Monday, September 18. A brief ceremony will be held at 4:30 p.m. at the front entrance of the Library, followed by a reception and light refreshments in the Friends Room.
