On Monday, October 6th, the five Henderson County Public Library branches extended their evening hours in response to a community needs survey.  Library administration surveyed patrons at the five branches in July and results overwhelmingly indicated that more evening hours would help patrons take advantage of library services across the county.

Fletcher and Etowah are now open Mondays and Wednesdays until 7:00 p.m.  Edneyville is open on Mondays and Tuesdays until 7:00 p.m. Green River stays open until 6:00 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and Mills River stays open until 6:00 p.m. on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

Fletcher, Etowah, and Edneyville have also adjusted their Saturday hours.  Fletcher is now open from 10:00 a.m. till 4 p.m., two hours longer than the previous schedule.  Etowah and Edneyville are open from 10:00 a.m. till 2:00 p.m. on Saturday.

Please contact Interim Library Director Trina Rushing or Branch Coordinator Sara Hyder McGough at (828) 697-4725 with any questions or comments about the new branch hours.
