We will be performing major server changes this weekend, beginning Saturday evening at 6 pm through Sunday, 10/22. Access to all library catalogs (CatalogPlus, Rochester Photo Images and Kids Catalog), the MCLS To Go app, EZ Login, Check My Account, and System Databases will be interrupted until the work has been completed. We will restore access as quickly as possible. We apologize in advance for the interruption in service.

Central Library Extends Evening Hours

HoursBeginning in 2017, the Central Library of Rochester and Monroe County will be offering extended evening hours two nights a week. 

“We found that the library was in demand during the evenings for events,” said Director, Patricia Uttaro, “We were keeping the library meeting room open for public meetings several times a year, so obviously the community needs our services later in the day.” 

The hours will begin on January 4th.  The new schedule is:

Monday *9 am- 8:30 pm

Tuesday *9 am – 6 pm

Wednesday *9 am – 8:30 pm

Thursday 11 am – 6 pm

Friday *9 am – 6 pm

Saturday 10 am – 5 pm


*9 am open times are for the first floor of the Bausch and Lomb Library building only. 

The entire Library opens at 10am. 

All departments of the library will be open during the evening including the children’s room.
