Library branches to extend hours

Eight San Francisco libraries this month are adding new hours and expanding service, officials with San Francisco Public Library have announced.

As of Oct. 21, the Portola, Ingleside and Mission Bay branches will be open on Sunday with hours of 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Starting Oct. 22, the Visitacion Valley, Ocean View, Merced and Park branches will be open Monday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

In addition, the Bayview/Anna E. Waden Branch will add morning and evening hours on Thursday, opening doors at 10 a.m. and closing at 8 p.m., beginning Oct. 24.

The Western Addition branch will be open on Sunday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. when the branch reopens in early 2008.

The nine branches were selected after a study identified which geographic locations would benefit most from additional library service, library officials said.

The library developed the extension plan with the input of community groups, including the Library Citizens Advisory Committee and the Council of Neighborhood Libraries, according to officials.

“I'm so pleased that the staff who led this effort engaged community members and responded to neighborhood needs,'' City Librarian Luis Herrera said. “This is a testament to the remarkable support San Franciscans give to their libraries.''
