Fulton County officials have reopened the Buckhead Library branch on Friday afternoons.
County commissioners voted Sept. 3 to restore Friday hours at 10 of the county’s 34 branches, including the Buckhead branch. The Buckhead Library is scheduled to be open from 1 until 5 p.m. on Fridays.
“I am overjoyed that my fellow commissioners saw fit to restore Friday library hours for 10 of the branches of the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library,” Commission Chairman John Eaves said in a statement released after the vote. “The unanimous support this proposal received reflects how much of a priority this is for our county.”
Fulton officials earlier this year reduced library hours, including eliminating Friday hours at a number of branches, as a budget-cutting move.
