Plan calls for D.C. libraries to open on Sundays
“The District’s public libraries would open on Sunday — and stay open for much longer on other days — under a $10 million plan that the D.C. Council is poised to take up this fall. Most library branches in the city are open for 48 hours each week, but legislation that Ward 2 Councilman Jack Evans is pressing would move that figure to at least 69 hours a week, a 44 percent jump. “The libraries are very important,” Evans said. “We have one of the finest library systems in the country, and people at community meetings bring [operating hours] up to me all the time.”
