CHICAGO — Ten of Chicago’s public libraries are expanding their hours so they’ll be open Sundays.
The 10 libraries — which cover a variety of neighborhoods, including Austin, Edgewater and Mt. Greenwood — will be open 1-5 p.m. Sundays starting April 18, according to a Mayor’s Office news release. The city plans to have all its libraries open Sundays by the end of 2021.
“This expansion of services makes [Chicago Public Libraries] more accessible by allowing Chicagoans with work or religious restrictions to utilize in-person essential library services on their schedule,” according to the Mayor’s Office.
