Rosenberg Library to Open on Mondays

Beginning Monday, April 4th, the Rosenberg Library will be open six days a week, Monday through Saturday from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm. In preparation for its expanded hours, the library has added several new staff members in recent months. The Rosenberg Library is currently open Tuesday through Saturday from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm.

Since Hurricane Ike, the library’s Board of Directors and staff have worked hard to reestablish and, in some areas, even exceed the level of service provided pre-Ike despite a smaller operating budget, fewer staff members, and the total devastation of the first floor of the building. Adding a full day to its hours of operation marks another important milestone in the library’s efforts to improve service to Galveston Island residents.

Visitors to the library are encouraged to take advantage of the facility’s many resources including the latest print and electronic books, magazines, DVDs, and CDs, free wireless internet access, a computer lab, reading areas, and exceptional museum and archive collections. The library also regularly offers youth programs and computer skills classes. Please visit the Rosenberg Library website for more information about its collections, services and upcoming events:
