The Fort Worth Public Library committed in its 2019-2021 strategic plan to reduce barriers to access libraries throughout the city. With that goal in mind, the Library is expanding hours at all locations beginning April 7.
The expanded hours provide an additional 20 hours a week for patrons to visit regional libraries, 14 more hours a week at local branches and an additional eight hours at the Central Library downtown. Colocation branches with Fort Worth Housing Solutions will maintain their current hours of operation.
The Central Library and regional libraries will now be open seven days a week, and all neighborhood branches throughout the city will be open six days a week.
Individuals and families can now enjoy more evening hours. Monday through Thursday, all branches are open until 8 p.m. and until 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Locations with Sunday hours will also be open until 6 p.m.
