The following is an announcement from the New England Historic Genealogical Society:
Starting September 1, 2004, the NEHGS Library will no longer be open to the public on Sundays. Although we were gratified initially by the response of members and visitors, we have found that very few members took advantage of this time frame, so we have decided to discontinue Sunday hours until further notice.
In another change, effective Tuesday, September 7, 2004, the library will begin opening at 10 a.m. on weekdays. On Saturdays it will open at 9 a.m. as usual.
The delayed weekday opening will permit our staff genealogists to offer more customized service to members by answering email inquiries, offering telephone consultations, or performing tutorials and contract research.
New Research Library hours will be as follows:Tuesday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.* Friday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Closed Sunday and Monday
*Winter hours: November 1 through March 31, Thursday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
