New Library Hours
Beginning May 31, 2022, the Long Beach Public Library will pilot new operating hours at three branch locations – Bay Shore Library, Bach Library and Billie Jean King Main Library – in effort to better address community needs expressed by responding residents through a summer 2021 survey.
New hours are as follows:
Tuesdays & Thursdays @ Billie Jean King Main Library - 10:00 AM - 7:00 PM
Tuesdays & Thursdays @ Bach and Bay Shore Libraries - 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Bay Shore and Bach Libraries were selected as the recommended locations to pilot this change based on resident responses from the community survey. The expansion in hours at Billie Jean King Main Library is needed to support the shift at Bay Shore and Bach, as City staffing backups come from teams at the Main Library.
After the pilot concludes on Sept. 30, the Library will evaluate its success during the fall to determine if the change will become permanent. More information regarding this pilot program and results from the community survey is available here.
