The new year will bring new hours at the Newcomerstown Public Library.

Results from a survey of its patrons and keeping track of traffic during morning and evenings, led to this decision.

Starting in January, the library will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. Keeping the same hours daily will also be easier for patrons to remember.

They are also planning to once again add a few Saturday hours in April when the library starts to receive levy monies.
