If you've visited your local library recently, or follow PCL on social media, you'll have noticed that we've been asking library users a few questions. Do you want to see your PCL location open more hours? Would you like it to see it offer more morning, evening, or weekend hours? Or all of these options?

Many of you have aleady answered our appeal and particular thanks go to everyone who attended our community meeting to discuss the case for More Hours For PCL on March 12 at Smith Hill Library.
