The Livermore Public Library has expanded the open hours at the Rincon Branch Library by adding hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The new open hours began on Tuesday, September 3, and are as follows:
Mondays: 12:00pm – 8:00 p.m.
Tuesdays: 2:00pm – 6:00 p.m.
Wednesdays: 10:00am – 6:00 p.m.
Thursdays: 2:00pm – 6:00 p.m.
Fridays: 10:00am – 5:00 p.m.
The Rincon Branch Library is located next to Marylin Avenue Elementary School, so children walk over after school to use the Library’s Homework Center. The Library Board of Trustees made it a priority to extend the Homework Center hours since the Rincon Branch Library is located in the most socioeconomically diverse area of Livermore. The Homework Center supports students by offering one-on-one homework assistance during weekday afternoons. With the expanded hours, the Homework Center will now be open throughout the week.
The increase in hours at the Rincon Branch Library was possible due to a modest budget increase, several funding shifts, and some staff time being saved with the recent elimination of overdue fines. “We are excited to be able to extend hours at the Rincon Branch Library in order to provide access to our Homework Center throughout the week,” said Library Services Director Tamera LeBeau. “While the Homework Center was the motivating factor behind adding Tuesday and Thursday hours, regular library services will be available at the Rincon Branch during these hours as well.”
The Rincon Branch Library is located at 725 Rincon Avenue in Livermore.
