El Cerrito Library’s new expanded hours coming in April!

More good news for El Cerrito Library users, community, and supporters!

El Cerrito Library and Contra Costa County Library have announced that the long expected expanded hours for our El Cerrito Library will begin Monday, 2 April 2018. The number of hours our Library is open will expand from the current total of 35 to the expanded total of 50. The El Cerrito City Council approved funds for the increase of 15 hours per week during their mid-year budget review in 2017.

Contra Costa County Library needed the time to fill existing staff vacancies and train the newly recruited staff members.

The new hours will be: 

Monday 12-8
Tuesday 12-8
Wednesday 10-6
Thursday 10-6
Friday 10-5 (expanded from 1 – 5)
Saturday 10-5

We are currently planning a First Wednesday event to celebrate the First Wednesday we are open, tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, April 4th, from 4:00 to 6:00 pm, so mark your calendar today!

 Details will be provided as they become available.
