New Sunday Hours at Four Branch Locations, Anastasia Island and Hastings Branches to Open Mondays

The St. Johns County Public Library System is excited to announce the expansion of library service hours beginning April 7. From 1 to 5 p.m., the Bartram Trail, Main, Ponte Vedra Beach, and Southeast branches will open on Sundays, giving St. Johns County residents access to an SJCPLS branch seven days a week. Additionally, the Anastasia Island and Hastings branches will open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Mondays beginning April 8. SJCPLS is able to offer enhanced services to residents and visitors thanks to the approval of additional staffing by the St. Johns County Board of County Commissioners for the fiscal year 2024 budget.

“Our community has been patiently waiting for us to open on Sundays and add Monday hours at the Anastasia Island and Hastings branches since we reduced services during the 2008 recession,” said Debra Rhodes Gibson, Library Director. “We’re thrilled to have the support of the Board of County Commissioners to extend hours and make it more convenient for families, professionals, and those with less flexible schedules to visit SJCPLS. We look forward to spending more time with our patrons in the library!”

In addition to bestsellers, movies, audiobooks, magazines, and more, St. Johns County residents who sign up for a library card receive 24/7 access to SJCPLS’s e-library for downloading e-books, reading The New York Times or Wall Street Journal digital editions, streaming movies and music, and researching for work or school projects.
