The Jersey Library in St Helier will be opening earlier from Wednesday 1 July in response to public demand,
The public will be able to use the Town library from 9am instead of 9.30am every Tuesday to Saturday, an increase in opening times of 2.5 hours a week.
Chief Librarian Ed Jewell said “People are regularly queuing outside the Library from 9am, waiting for the doors to open. We have reorganised the way we work so that we are now able to open earlier and give the public greater access to the Town Library.”
Education, Sport and Culture Minister Deputy Rod Bryans said “The needs of our users have to be at the centre of our thinking when we’re delivering States services so I’m pleased the team at Jersey Library have taken this initiative. The library is an excellent resource at the heart of our community and we want to encourage islanders to make full use of it.”
