RICHARDSON – Starting Monday, February 11th the Richardson Public Library will have new extended hours of operation.

The change in hours is part of the most recent Strategic Plan where resident input indicated a desire from the community to see the Library open earlier during the week.  The new hours mean the Library is now open 68 hours a week.

An average of 1,000 people visit the Library daily to enjoy the many resources and programs available including Library computers with free Internet access and Microsoft Office programs like Word, Excel and Powerpoint.
