In the past few months, I’ve spent a lot of time researching and testing libraries that offer a wide range of library hours, from a few minutes a day to two hours a week.
And while it may seem like it’s just a few hours of your life per week, there are a lot more hours in there than you might think.
We asked some library users to share their library hours in their own words, and they told us a lot about the kind of time that’s spent in libraries, the people who use them, and the communities they’re part of.
The numbers aren’t exact, but a lot are very close.
Here are some of the most popular libraries in the US and Canada: 1.
