Dear Mr Luthra,
we received your complaint about the opening hours of the central library in the inner city.
I do agree that they should be changed and we intend to extend the opening hours for this library in the near future.
The current central library building located at "Bottlerplatz" will be rebuilt and will be closed during construction time. In the meantime, a small interim library will open its doors in the inner city. However, we will extend the opening hours during that transitional period already.
As of the year 2013 you will find a new central library in the new "Haus der Bildung" with considerably extended opening hours. This service will be provided with the help of new "media-machines". Readers will then not only be able to benefit from the new opening hours, but also will have the option to return books and media far beyond regular opening hours - for 24 hours a day.
I hope that this information will prove helpful.
