A west Suffolk library could open for an extra six hours a week under new proposals.

Customers are being asked for their views on the proposed changes to opening hours at Long Melford Library, which would mean longer hours on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

The library would also be open on Saturday under the new plans but closed on Sundays.

The proposed new hours at Long Melford Library are:

Monday - Closed (no change)

Tuesday - 10am to 1pm and 2pm to 5pm (currently open 2pm to 5.30pm)

Wednesday - 10am to 1pm and 2pm to 5pm (the library is currently open 2pm to 5pm)

Thursday - closed (no change)

Friday - 10am to 1pm and 2pm to 5pm (the library is currently open 2pm to 7pm)

Saturday - 9am – 1pm (currently closed)

Sunday - closed (currently 12pm to 4.30pm)

The total number of hours at Brandon Library will remain the same under proposals to open one hour longer on a Wednesday and close one hour earlier on a Friday.

The new hours would be more aligned to other services based in the Brandon Centre where the library is based.

The proposed new hours at Brandon Library are:

Monday - Closed (no change)

Tuesday - 10am to 5.30pm (no change)

Wednesday - 10am to 3pm (the library is currently open 10am-2pm)

Thursday - 10am to 5.30pm (no change)

Friday - 10am to 6pm (the library is currently open 10am to 7pm)

Saturday - 10am – 1pm and 2pm to 5pm (no change)

Sunday - 10am to 3pm (no change)

Customers can complete a survey about the Long Melford changes in the library or online via www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/Lmelfordlibrary

Customers wishing to comment on the Brandon proposals can also do so in the library or online at www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/Brandonlibhours

The deadline for completing the surveys is Friday, October 12, and any change in hours will then have to be agreed by the Suffolk Libraries Board and Suffolk County Council.
