Change Your Schedule. Amarillo Public Library Hours Have Changed.
There are things in life that we take for granted. Typically they're things that we do on a daily basis, or a part of our daily routine. I know I'm the type of person who lives and dies by a routine the majority of the time.
If something in that routine is thrown off, whether it's temporarily or permanently, I have to restructure how I go about everything. When the kids baseball schedules change, or practice is moved to a different day, it messes with me big time.
So I can 100% appreciate those who get a bit upset when something closes early, or opens late. We're running on a schedule and don't want to deviate from it. Well, I've got bad news for those of you who have visiting the Amarillo public libraries baked into your evening schedule, because things are about to change.
They recently announced that the hours of the library are changing, and they are effective immediately. The libraries used to remain open until 9 pm Mon-Thurs, but they'll now only be open until 7:30 pm.
The library is used for a lot more than just checking out books or media. There are people that attend different programs there, go in to print something out from a computer, or even hop on the internet there as they can't afford to have their own home Wi-Fi.
Knocking a full 90 minutes off the time they're open can dramatically shift someone's schedule, as if they were heading into the library more towards 8 pm, they'll have to find a way to get in there earlier. Some of the evening programs that were being run will now start earlier in order to get everything in before they close the doors at 7:30.
The new hours are below:
Monday through Thursday: 9:00 a.m. until 7:30 p.m.
Friday and Saturday: 9:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.
Sunday: 2:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m.
