Library to open on Mondays again

The Dalton-Whitfield County Library is pleased to announce the return of regular service on Mondays.

Beginning Feb. 3, the library will add Mondays back to its regularly scheduled week, thanks to a return in funding from Whitfield County government. The schedule will be Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Opening on Mondays was a change that many people in the community wanted to see. For many, starting their week off with a trip to the library was something engrained in their schedule. The addition of more hours means that there are more opportunities for individuals to use the resources available at the library, such as the computer lab, meeting room, books and magazines, as well as provide more times for events and classes to be offered.

The library will still be closed for regularly scheduled holidays. Book drops will remain open every day, and books can be renewed online through the PINES catalog at any time. The library provides access to PINES and its other electronic resources, including Galileo, One-Click downloadable audiobooks, Zinio Online periodicals and the Northwest Georgia Regional Library Facebook page via the website at www.ngrl.org/dalton. For more information about the schedule, call the library at (706) 876-1360 or come by.
