Sunday hours will return to the Boston Public Library in Copley Square in October, under a new spending plan approved by the Boston Public Library Trustees.
That reverses an earlier change to eliminate Sunday hours. According to a press release, the Central Library will be open 1 to 5 p.m. on Sundays, October through May, with exceptions for holidays.
“This is excellent news for the Boston Public Library and the people who use and enjoy our services. Real appreciation is due to the public, library staff, trustees, and state and city elected officials, including Mayor Menino, who showed such determination and support for the library," Boston Public Library President Amy E. Ryan said in a release.
According to the release, the trustees approved a $9.34 million budget for the 2012 fiscal year, including $2.42 million from the state support. The state budget approved this summer includes $2.76M for the Boston Public Library, or the same amount as fiscal year 2011.
