[ARCHIVED] New Hours at Bethel and Sheldon Branches Starting Sept. 1

Based on public input and an analysis of patterns of use, Eugene Public Library will adjust the open hours of the Bethel and Sheldon branches starting September 1. Each branch will be open the same number of hours as before, on a new schedule to best use tax dollars to meet community needs.

Bethel and Sheldon Branch Open Hours (starting Sept. 1):
Tuesday: 2:00 - 8:00 p.m.
Wednesday and Thursday: 2:00 - 6:00 p.m.
Friday and Saturday: 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Closed Sunday & Monday

Among other benefits, the adjusted schedule will offer evening hours on Tuesdays, and will allow Family Storytime at each branch will return to 10:15 a.m. on Fridays.

The Branch book returns will continue to open each Tuesday at 2:00 p.m. and remain open 24 hours a day until they close each Saturday at 4:00 p.m. They will stay closed on Sunday and Monday. They will re-open each Tuesday at 2:00 p.m.

For more information, please ask Library staff in person, by phone (541-682-5450), or
