Thank You

Input from the community has been a critical part of the decision making process and we thank everyone who participated in providing feedback. In reviewing the results of the May 2013 Brisbane Library Open Hours Community Survey,

  • 69% of survey respondents indicated they would use the library more if the library were open different hours and
  • 70% of survey respondents preferred that the changed hours include additional morning weekday and weekend hours.

New Hours for the Brisbane Library

After assessing the May 2013 Brisbane Library Open Hours Community Survey, collecting and reviewing current Brisbane Library usage patterns, and analyzing open hours of neighboring libraries, we have been able to approve updated library open hours.

  • Monday—Wednesday 10am-7pm
  • Thursday—Friday 12pm-5pm
  • Saturday 11am-5pm

Starting Tuesday, September 3rd 2013

The new hours will go into effect after the Labor Day Holiday on Tuesday, 3 September 2013 and include 7 new hours of morning service. We look forward to welcoming even more of the community, more frequently, in September. Please contact Carine Risley, Brisbane Library Manager, for additional information at 415.467.2060
