Ironwood Library

Brian Johnson/AFN George Jeffery, 78, has been volunteering at the Ironwood Library since 2002, just months after arriving from Oregon with his wife of 58 years to take up their retirement home in Ahwatukee. Above, Jeffery is shown doing a big part of his weekly job - repairing books before they go back on the shelves. July 27, 2010

Beginning on Tuesday, Sept. 3 nine Phoenix Public Library locations will change their hours of service on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., including Ahwatukee’s Ironwood Library, 4333 E. Chandler Blvd.,

Current hours of service on those days are 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Hours are being changed to better serve customers. The last hour of the current business day (8 to 9 p.m.) at these locations has proven to be among the slowest.

In addition, library customers have indicated that morning hours are more convenient — especially for families with small children, school groups and many older customers.
