BROWARD COUNTY, FL
- Beginning June 19, 2016, seven Broward County Libraries Division locations will feature expanded service hours that will allow the libraries to stay open additional day/s of the week. This expansion of hours is possible through the Library's new service model, which features increased hours of library operation within the Library's existing budget. One library, the Fort Lauderdale Reading Center, has already expanded its days of operation.

The Fort Lauderdale Branch Library is now open five days a week instead of only two, and the Century Plaza/Leon Slatin, Deerfield Beach Percy White, Imperial Point, Lauderhill Towne Centre, Pompano Beach, Riverland and Sunrise Dan Pearl branch libraries will all now be open six days a week instead of five. In the coming months, Broward County Libraries will offer expanded library hours at more locations under the new service model.

"These new, expanded hours are part of our way of increasing the ways that we serve our community and our customers," says Broward County Libraries Division Acting Director Laura Connors. "Expanded library hours mean more access to the Library's resources and services such as free public-computers, events, literacy and computer classes, children's programs and more."
