The Lawrence Public Library, 707 Vt., will open two hours earlier on Sundays and close two hours earlier on Fridays.
Mary Lynn Stuart, a receptionist at the library, said the change in hours is in response to the public’s interest in increased library service on Sundays. The library will open at noon, rather than 2 p.m. on Sundays and close two hours earlier on Fridays — at 7 p.m. instead of 9 p.m.
The library now is open: 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday; 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday; and noon to 6 p.m. Sunday.
And the library’s fines have increased from 10 cents a day to 15 cents a day for all overdue materials returned. The maximum fine for overdue materials has increased from $3 to $4.50.
