As autumn approaches, weekend hours are set to return to Boston Public Library branches across the city.

The library’s neighborhood branches will restore Saturday hours beginning Sept. 7, and the central library in Copley Square will restore Sunday hours on Oct. 6. The library cuts operating hours in the summer months.

Saturday hours at library branches vary, but are typically 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. or 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Lower Mills, North End, and West End branches are open 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays.

The Roslindale branch's full schedule will also be updated in September. The branch will be open Monday through Wednesday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. On Thursday, the branch will be open 12 to 8 p.m. and on Friday it will be open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday hours will be 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The Uphams Corner Branch will remain temporarily closed for building improvements. Construction is expected to be completed in September.

The central library will be open from 1 to 5 p.m. on Sundays except on the Sundays that precede Monday holidays.

All Boston Public Library locations will be closed on Monday, Sept. 2, for Labor Day.
