Family History Library to Change Saturday Hours

March 1, 2013

SALT LAKE CITY — Beginning April 13, 2013, the Family History Library Saturday operating hours will change to 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

The change in hours will better allocate resources that were being spent on low-traffic hours late Saturday evening.

“This change is being made so that valuable staff and volunteer resources can be allocated to other busier times during the week that have greater patron demand,” said Don Anderson, director of the Family History Library. “This change will facilitate better service to patrons during the high-demand hours.”
