New Library Hours For Robertson/Airdrome Branch

The Jewish Journal reports: To accommodate Shabbat-observant patrons, the Robertson branch of the Los Angeles Public Library (LAPL) has changed its weekend hours. Located in the heavily Jewish neighborhood of Pico-Robertson, the branch is now open from 1 to 5 p.m. on Sundays and closed on Saturdays.

The change took effect on April 10, marking the first time that any library branch has been open on a Sunday since April 2010, when $22 million cut from the library’s annual budget forced a drastic reduction in service. All 73 Los Angeles libraries have been closed on Mondays as well since last July.

Robertson Branch will be open Sundays beginning 4/10/11.
Branch will be closed Saturdays beginning 4/16/11.
