Library alters business hours

MILLEDGEVILLE — The Twin Lakes Library System is shifting by adding six hours to its weekly schedule in order to cater to the community. Starting Saturday, the Mary Vinson Memorial Library will operate 51 hours per week compared to its previous business schedule of 45 hours.

“We changed our schedule last August, but it didn’t work out well as we had hoped; people weren’t happy,” said Sarah Hamil, outreach coordinator. “This new schedule is a really great change for the library system, our patrons and the community. This change is going to give more hours for people to take advantage of our programs and services and provide a more consistent schedule. The staff is really happy about it.”

The Mary Vinson Memorial Library will now operate during the following hours:

• Monday: 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

• Tuesday: 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

• Wednesday: 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

• Thursday: 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

• Friday: 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

• Saturday: 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The Lake Sinclair Library’s hours will remain from noon to 6 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday.

The library will welcome Gwen Phelps, author of “Damaged Goods,” during a book signing event from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Monday.
