The Geauga County Public Library is now open year round Sunday afternoons from 1 – 5 p.m. at Bainbridge, Chardon, Geauga West in Chesterland, and Middlefield. The two library stations in Newbury and Thompson are open from noon – 4 p.m. on Sundays. GCPL has been open on Sundays from Labor Day weekend through Memorial Day weekend, but the change now will include Sunday hours during the summer months.

“This expansion of hours allows patrons more access to the materials and services they either desire to have or may require for certain projects,” says Ed Worso, GCPL Director. “We firmly believe in being customer focused. It’s our job to be open to the best of our ability to provide the services and materials patrons need.”

Library access during summer months allows GCPL to offer additional programs. Moreover, patrons who have a need for meeting space now may use library facilities – complete with air-conditioning and WiFi seven days a week. As always, patrons will have full access to the collection.
