New Hours for Wood Library

Starting on January 2, 2018, Wood Library, at 134 N Main St, Canandaigua, will open at 9:00AM Monday through Friday, and extend hours of operation on Fridays to 6:00PM. Saturday hours are unchanged. On Sunday, the library will open one hour later at 1:00PM.

The new schedule is—

Monday-Thursday 9:00AM-9:00PM
Friday 9:00AM-6:00PM
Saturday 10:00AM-5:00PM
Sunday 1:00-4:00PM

The number of hours the library is open to the public will increase from 3,078 a year to 3,376 in 2018, an additional 278 hours. The added hours are possible thanks to an $18,000 increase in community-based funding for Wood Library which was authorized by Canandaigua City School District voters in May 2017.

Wood Library is a full-service community library and registered 501(c)3 charitable organization serving everyone who resides in the Canandaigua City School District. Its mission is to provide exceptional public library service in a comfortable and safe environment where people can satisfy their curiosity, stimulate their imaginations, and connect to the local community and to the world.
