Brooklyn Libraries Get Sunday Hours

BROOKLYN (Hamodia staff) -

Four branches of the Brooklyn Public Library will be open on Sundays in neighborhoods where Orthodox Jews live, to compensate for their being unable to utilize the library on Shabbos, Councilmen David Greenfield and Brad Lander announced.

The Sunday hours will go into effect starting Oct. 25 at the branches on Ave. J and East 16th, 13th Ave. and 43rd St., 18th Ave. and 60th St. and on 23rd Ave. and 59th St.

Due to union rules, operating on Sunday is considerably more expensive than other days. The two lawmakers obtained the additional funding.
