LA NUCIA’S Caravana Municipal Library has extended opening hours until the end of the month to coincide with exam time.
The library is open all the way through from 9am to 9pm until January 31, in other words an additional three hours a day.
The local council first started increasing the library hours in January, as well as in the month of May, in 2012 with a view to making life easier for students revising for university and civil service exams. The statistics suggest library-goers appreciate the extra opening time.
Before the extension the average number of people using the library in January was 2,800, but since 2012 this has risen to more than 4,300.
The Carvana library first opened its doors in February 2007, and has since been used by some 335,000 people.
La Nucia Mayor Bernabe Cano pointed out the library not only serves as a facility for residents of La Nucia but also of surrounding towns thanks to its “strategic location and easy connection with other municipalities in the region”, describing it as “an excellent study environment.”
