The popular Sunday hours at Martin Library in York City will resume at the end of the month.
The library will once again have operating hours from 1-5 p.m. each Sunday. Spokeswoman Deb Sullivan said Martin takes a summer hiatus from the extra hours because the county library system is incredibly busy with children home from school and enrolled in summer reading programs.
Martin Library, the only one in the county system with Sunday hours, started opening on Sundays a few years ago to help out people who couldn't make it on other days. Sunday is the most popular day of the week for computer usage, and more than 600 visitors stopped by Martin each Sunday last year, Sullivan said.
"It is still very popular," she said.
Informational services staff are available on Sundays to help those people doing research, she added.
Martin is also open from 9 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday-Thursday and from 9 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Sunday hours start Sept. 30.
The Sunday hours are made possible by donations from Block Business Systems, the George & Josephine Schmidt Memorial Fund of York County Community Foundation, and the Junior League of York.
