    Library Finding a good book to read in South Westminster just got a whole lot easier.

    Over the weekend, the Irving Street Library held its Sunday Funday Kick-off event to celebrate its new Sunday hours. The library is now open to the community on Sundays between 1:00 and 5:00 p.m.

    The Sunday Funday Kick-off event featured free food, music and a family art project, but most importantly books. Lots and lots of books.

    Westminster City Council Member Alberto Garcia lobbied for the Sunday opening to offer even more opportunities for families to get to the library. “Whether it is high school students researching for their homework, a job-seeker using the internet to search for employment or children learning to read, it was important to council that our residents have access to this community resource seven days a week,” said Garcia.

    “This is great news,” said Mat Aubuchon, Director of Early Childhood Education in District 50. “Reading is so important and the opportunity for families to go to the library on a Sunday afternoon and find a book to share is wonderful.”
