SLCL Extends Hours Thanks to Prop L

Press Release

Tuesday, December 11, 2012 - 12:00p.m.


St. Louis County Library will extend hours at the Meramec Valley and Eureka Hills branches, and introduce year-round hours on Sunday at four branches starting January 1. The changes are made possible by the passage of Proposition L in November.

The branch hours at Meramec Valley and Eureka Hills will now match the rest of the system: 9:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday; 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.

The following branches will be open year-round on Sunday from 1:00 – 5:00 p.m.: Daneil Boone, Florissant Valley, Headquarters and Tesson Ferry.

Proposition L, approved by 58% of the voters on November 6, increases the library’s tax ceiling by 6 cents to 26 cents per $100 valuation. The increase will fund new branches where needed, repair and remodel others and enhance service at all 20 locations. Planning for the new projects will begin in 2013.
