New Library Hours Begin July 18 with Extended Sunday Service

June 18, 2021 — The Springfield-Greene County Libraries will lift its limited, pandemic-era hours beginning Sunday, July 18, giving visitors more and later hours of service at some branches, and eight hours of service at three branches on Sundays.

Please note: The CDC and Springfield-Greene County Health Department strongly recommend everyone -- regardless of vaccination status -- wear a mask indoors.

The Library has had limited hours of operation at all branches since May 2020 due to the pandemic. Most branches operated from 8:30 a.m.-6 p.m. and were closed Sundays. The new schedule is a result of public demand for expanded evening and weekend hours balanced with lower patron traffic at other times.

The most significant change is at the Library Center, Library Station and Schweitzer Brentwood Branch. The buildings and drive-up window service will be open 10 a.m.-6 p.m. on Sundays.

The new schedule follows:
