Beginning Tuesday, Sept. 3, the Jackson District Library is set to launch new hours at 11 of the community’s 13 libraries across Jackson County. The change brings with it 43 additional hours district-wide. This is the first increase in open hours at JDL since 2013.Highlights from the change include the Spring Arbor Branch opening its doors on Tuesdays and Thursdays, the Concord Branch opening on Tuesdays, and the Carnegie Library expanding its hours to include Sunday afternoons. The Springport Branch will now open Tuesdays and Thursdays to make sure residents in the area can access either the Springport or Parma branches any day between Monday and Saturday.”We saw a need to expand our hours to help keep the library accessible to people across the county,” JDL Director Sara Tackett said. “With our original hours, there were times when five or six branches on one side of Jackson County were closed, an issue we wanted to alleviate.”The Meijer Branch and the Napoleon Branch will continue to keep their original hours.”The changes reflect how often area residents want to take advantage of library resources,” JDL Assistant Director Jason Shoup said. “As more and more people continue to use the Jackson District Library, we’ll continue to expand.”
