“To help the public, and especially, our loyal patrons, the library system will extend its hours any time the Main Library is closed for more than one week during the renovation,” said Library Director Priscilla Gardner. “And the Bookmobile will always have scheduled stops at the Main Library when it is closed.”

The Bookmobile will be stationed in front of the Main Library on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays (Blue Route / http://www.jclibrary.org/images/bookmobile/fallwinter2015.pdf), and on Tuesdays and Fridays (Red Route / http://www.jclibrary.org/images/bookmobile/fallwinterred2015.pdf) in the afternoon for both routes.

Extended hours remain in effect until the Main Library reopens to the public on March 2016.
