The Drumheller Public Library is staying open later.

It was decided that the library in Drumheller will keep a consistent schedule throughout the week and close at 8 p.m, Monday to Friday.

"We have had more and more people wanting to use the library," explained Director of Library Services, Emily Hollingshead. "We've had kids using the computers to play games together, a whole bunch of new groups from last summer and there are lots of things that we would like to do. There are only so many evenings and they get booked up quickly."

Normally, the library would close at 5 p.m.

"It also simplifies our hours. We're open Monday to Friday until eight and we close at five on Saturday," Hollingshead said.

"We have programs that we would like to try now that we have a second program room and two extra evenings to use," she commented. "So now that we've added the extended hours and the room is good to go, we will start playing around with different things and see what sticks in the community."
