For Immediate Release: Tuesday, August 31, 2021

Montgomery County Public Libraries (MCPL) will expand hours to the community back to pre-pandemic level effective Sunday, Sept. 12.

The operational hours for all branches, excluding Maggie Nightingale (Poolesville) and Noyes Library for Young Children, will be:

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday – 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Friday, Saturday, Sunday – 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The hours and schedule for Maggie Nightingale (currently closed for a branch refresh) and Noyes libraries will remain as they currently stand.

“MCPL has taken a phased approach to resuming our services that were impacted by the pandemic. We reopened all of our physical buildings to the community on July 6,” said MCPL Director Anita Vassallo. “We then began to work to restore our operating hours, including those on Sundays. We know how much the residents of the County value being able to visit their public libraries, so we are very pleased to be able to expand our service hours.”
