The Hours of Operation Policy serves to establish regular operating hours for the Library.
General Hours of Operations
The Eagle Public Library exists to serve the information needs of the community, and because those needs extend beyond traditional business hours, the Library will be open the maximum number of hours allowed by its budget. Those hours will be determined for patron convenience subject to budgetary restraint, as determined by the Board of Trustees.
Annual Holiday Observances
The Library will close on holidays observed by the City of Eagle. Closings may vary depending on the day of the week the actual holiday falls during each calendar year.
The Library will also close as follows:
Thanksgiving Eve – close at 6:00 pm
Christmas Eve – close at noon, unless earlier observance by City Hall
New Year’s Eve – close at 6:00 pm, unless earlier observance by City Hall
Easter Sunday (an unpaid day off for staff), and
the first Thursday of December for a staff in-service day.
Exceptions and Emergency Closures
Except in cases of emergencies, notice of closing will be posted in the library two weeks in advance and will be reported to the local news media.
Amendment of Rules
The Board of Trustees of the Eagle Public Library reserves the right to review and amend this policy at any time.
