The fol­low­ing is a ques­tion sub­mit­ted by a pa­tron and an­swered by the Li­brary:

Q. Is noon writ­ten as 12 a.m. or 12 p.m.

A. Nei­ther is cor­rect. The Li­brary went on the In­ter­net to find that the ab­brievi­aions stand for “post merid­ian” (af­ter noon) and “ante merid­ian” (be­fore noon). You should write 12 mid­day or 12 noon, or sim­ply re­fer to “noon.” CLOSED MON­DAY Both li­braries in Centreville and Kent Is­land will be closed all day Mon­day in honor of Me­mo­rial Day. Both will open at 9 a.m. May 31 for a full day. AF­TER­NOON BOOK
