What's New

NOVEMBER 17, 2011
Preview JCPL's 2012 Hours
New Hours 2012As you know, JCPL is facing additional budget cuts in 2012. As a result we are making changes to our program of service, including new operating hours. Beginning Jan. 2, the Library will reopen on Mondays; however, the operating hours for each library will be changing. Hours will remain unchanged through the end of 2011.

Learn more about the decision to adjust our hours of operation. 

While we know these changes will be difficult, we believe the Library can still deliver a meaningful level of service, while reducing operating costs. As hard as this is, we believe it will allow us to achieve a sustainable solution to get us through the next few years.

I like that you will open back up on Mondays. It's a great day for us to visit our local library.

So how do you suppose your patrons will be able to remember all the hours that change during the week? I think you should have an app for that - and maybe a bookmark that we can keep in our cars or on our fridge.

Hi there, We know that the new hours may be confusing for our patrons and take some time to get used to. We will be making bookmarks and magnets with the new hours on them. Additionally, the hours are available on the brochures you get in the libraries. While we don't yet have an app, we do have a mobile site that you can bookmark from the homepage of your smartphone for easy access to hours, locations, account info and the catalog. You can access it at
