Dent said the first Sunday the Village branch was open, just 12 items were checked out. But while that number has been growing each week, she expects even more visitors as students go back to school this month.

“It gives students that much more time do whatever they need to do,” Dent said. “We also have a lot of people who come in that don’t have computers who are looking for jobs online or are filling job applications out online.”

Hausburg said there are currently no plans to add Sunday programs to the system’s menu of activities but that could change. She said there has been some interest in computer classes for seniors that could be held on Sundays.
