Sunday Hours Restored at Wicomico Public Library

Posted:
SALISBURY, Md. - Students needing last-minute studying before each week of the school year will have more time at the Wicomico Public Library. The Downtown Branch of Wicomico Public Library announced Monday that it will be open on Sunday throughout the school year beginning in September.

The library will be open from 1:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. beginning September 7 through May 17. The library says these new hours are in addition to the Sunday hours at the Centre Branch; 11:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. year-round.

Workers at the library say this is an exciting opportunity for the library. They say Sundays are a family day, and they're excited to be able to open the library to the community.

"We are thrilled to be able to open the Downtown Library on Sundays." stated Executive Director Andrea Berstler. "This has been an ongoing request from the community since budget cuts forced the Library to reduce hours in 2009. We appreciate the support of the County Executive, Rick Pollitt. His recommendation to the County Council that these hours needed to be restored demonstrates his understanding that the Library is a vital service in our community. County Council's actions in keeping this recommendation in the budget means that we can be more accessible to our community."

Wicomico Public Library has locations in Downtown Salisbury, the Centre at Salisbury, in Pittsville, and the Library Bookmobile. The public library provides classes and events, resources and online services.

    Second Wave of Debris, Pollution Enter Bay After Conowingo Dam Opens Gates

Now, all that water flowing down the Susquehanna River has reached the Conowingo Dam, rising fast and forcing engineers to open up six dam gates on Wednesday. Exelon, the dam's owner, expects to open more gates as water levels peak on Thursday.
