The Los Angeles Public Library Monday restored its libraries’ hours to their pre-pandemic schedules.

The Los Angeles Central Library, at 630 W. Fifth St., is now open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.

Branch libraries are open Monday and Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Tuesday and Thursday from noon to 8 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. The Robertson Branch Library, at 1719 S. Robertson Blvd., is closed Saturday and instead open from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.

People can browse, access computers, pick up items on hold, print and check out materials at 70 library locations. Four branches — the Benjamin Franklin Branch Library, the Memorial Branch Library, the Palisades Branch Library and the Van Nuys Branch Library — are closed for maintenance.

The Los Angeles Public Library has been gradually returning to normal service after closing its libraries to in-person service in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
