Marià Villangómez library extends opening hours to Friday afternoons

Today the Formentera Office of Culture presented the new winter schedule at Marià Villangómez library and the reopening of the Sant Ferran Reading Spot (Punt de Lectura).

Monday 12 September, as the school year gets under way, Marià Villangómez library will begin its new winter schedule. This school year, the library will open Monday to Friday mornings 9.30am to 1.00pm and afternoons 4.00pm to 7.30pm. The new hours mark an extension of last year's timetable, which didn't included Friday afternoon/evening.

The expanded hours can be traced to a plenary agreement in which the Consell undertook to study urgently offering service Marià Villangómez library on Friday afternoons and Saturday mornings in response to public demand. "We have retooled staff schedules to open Friday afternoons", explained Susana Labrador, councillor of education and culture. "The current situation does not allow for service on Saturday mornings, but as soon as possible we will implement it."

The Punt de Lectura will also reopen 12 September with its usual schedule: Monday to Friday, 4.30pm to 7.00pm.
