Thursday, August 29, 2013

The Chattanooga Public Library’s branches will be offering new extended hours beginning Friday, Sept. 6.The Eastgate, South Chattanooga and Northgate Branches will begin operating on Fridays from 9 a.m.–6 p.m. As a result of adding the new Friday hours, the Eastgate and Northgate branches will now be open seven days a week.

Expanding the service hours at each of the branches is in response to the increased use of the Chattanooga Public Library by the communities in the neighborhoods where the branches are located.  Extending operating hours also means there will be more opportunities to expand programs and services offered at each location, library management said.
