Beginning Monday, September 28 the Benton Library is extending their hours of operation due to the steady rise in the number of residents living the area. Bossier Parish Library Director Heather McEntee said, “In order to accommodate the growth in our parish and best serve our community, we will be increasing public service hours.”
Benton branch manager Kristin Kennedy said, “We are very excited to be able to provide these new hours to the Benton community. It is our hope that this will allow access to the library for those whose schedules have prevented their use of the library in the past and that the community finds the new hours to be beneficial.”
Monday through Thursday—9 a.m. to 8p.m.
Friday—9a.m. to 6p.m.
Saturday—9a.m. to 5p.m.
Sunday—2p.m. to 5p.m.
Next year on January 9 the Haughton, Plain Dealing, and Tooke branches will follow suit.
