Boro Park Library Expands Hours to Include Sunday

by BoroPark24 Staff

Assemblyman Simcha Eichenstein, Senator Simcha Felder, and Councilman Kalman Yeger jointly announced with the Brooklyn Public Library President Linda E. Johnson that the Boro Park Branch will open on Sundays rather than on Shabbos starting March 10. 

The Boro Park branch is the only remaining location serving the neighborhood while both the Mapleton and Ryder branches undergo much-needed renovations and upgrades.

The elected officials expressed gratitude for President Johnson's willingness to reevaluate the sweeping Sunday closure policy that was vehemently opposed by Assemblyman Eichenstein, Senator Felder, and Councilman Yeger.

The new, more equitable plan will accommodate families across Brooklyn with more expansive access to the library's resources at the Boro Park Branch location. There are no plans yet in place to extend it to libraries serving other neighborhoods across Brooklyn.

"Cuts to City funding have had significant impacts on library service, and we are proud to have worked with our dedicated elected officials to find a solution at Borough Park Library that better serves neighboring communities," said Johnson, "We know that public libraries and the vital services we provide are a lifeline for many, and we are steadfast in our commitment to ensuring the library's resources and programming are accessible to all."
