Library officials said it’s the first time in at least 100 years.</p><p>The extra hours come courtesy of Seattle voters, who approved a 7-year, $122 million property tax levy in August. The new money reverses years if cutbacks, and will allow every library location to open its doors from 1:00 to 5:00 Sunday afternoons. Library programs director Stephanie Chase said it’s gratifying to be adding services for a change instead of scaling them back.</p> Thu, 03 Jan 2013 01:08:17 +0000 Gabriel Spitzer 7480 at http://kplu.org Seattle libraries start Sunday hours
