I live in GA, originally from NY, and in this place for some unknown reason, the library is closed on Sundays. This place is boring as hell.

Open Sundays?In the Orange County,Ca city in which I reside most branches are now closed on Saturday.This was done because of budget cuts.Even during better times the libraries were never open on Sundays,as far back as I can recall.

Not sure where you are, but the libraries around me (Atlanta-Fulton & DeKalb) are open 7 days.

When I first moved to San Antonio, only the main library downtown was open on Sunday. Since the library was successful at getting a piece of the local sales tax revenue, one of the improvements that was made with the new money was adding Sunday hours.

Where I used to live, most branches of the library were closed on Sunday because the union that the library workers belonged to had a contract specifying they would receive double-time for working on Sunday. It was the most expensive day of the week for the library to operate there!

Our libraries are open 7 days a week until late at night because we pay at least 8000 a year in taxes. I would expect nothing less from the libraries, lol.

Barely anything is open on Sundays here.. My county is one of the only counties who has Blue Laws which means most businesses don't open up on Sundays due to religious diversity.
