New hours begin January 6 for Balaton & Cottonwood.

New Hours at the Balaton and Cottonwood Libraries

In November, the Marshall Lyon County Library (MLCL) Board approved adjusting the hours at the Balaton and Cottonwood Libraries.  Now the hours at the two locations will be the same, which makes it much easier to remember!  Starting Monday, January 6th, the hours for both Balaton and Cottonwood will be:

Mondays:        2:00 – 7:00 pm
Tuesdays:        Closed
Wednesdays:   10:00 am – 3:00 pm
Thursdays:       Closed
Fridays:           10 am – 1:00 pm and 1:30 – 5:30 pm
Saturdays:     9 am – noon

The primary reason for the adjustment is that the 10 am start on Wednesdays and Fridays helps us serve more people in the communities and out in the county.  Currently, we are serving a number of daycares and an adult residential facility around the county.  The change in the hours allows the branch staff to help the Marshall staff to deliver these important county services.

As with all our services, we will review the hours next year and adjust as needed so we can continue to bring you the best we can offer.
