The Bozeman Public Library will soon be open on Sundays.

The library is usually closed on Sundays during the summer, from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

City Manager Chris Kukulski said money was added to this year’s city budget to keep the library open seven days a week. The Bozeman City Commission adopted the budget earlier this week.

Library Director Susan Gregory said Wednesday it’s uncertain when Sunday hours will begin, but library staff members hope to start by July 21, the weekend of the Friends of the Library’s summer used book sale.

The library hours will be from 1 to 5 p.m. on Sundays, she said.

“Being available on Sunday afternoons would be a real benefit to the community,” Gregory said. “Our customers would love it.”

The library averages about 900 to 1,500 visitors per day.

Gregory said the library is also planning to offer more computer classes, particularly classes that provide job skills such as resume building and how to use Microsoft Word and Excel.
