New Friday Hours at the SoBoCo Public Library

The DBRL staff and board are pleased to announce that, starting in January 2010, we’ll be able to add hours to our busy library branch in Ashland. The Southern Boone County Public Library will now stay open until 6 p.m. on Friday, instead of closing at 3 p.m.

The library at 117 East Broadway in Ashland first opened August 1, 2000 for 20 hours a week. This current hours expansion means Ashland patrons have 54 hours a week to use the library in its 10th anniversary year.

This is one of the service improvements we’ll be undertaking next year as a result of our recent strategic planning process. Watch our web site and “Your Library” mailing for announcements about the new youth bookmobile and new online catalog coming soon!

Today: the SoBoCo Public Library has thousands of visitors each month who check out materials or use the space for study and recreation.

Looking back: Before the leased library opened, a temporary library operated out of an older-model bookmobile parked at Ashland Baptist Church.
