Yes, I agree. I may have misunderstood the OP (apparently I have :) and
thought of a single library that is spread across a few buildings, not
something like a municipal library network. In the latter case I would
not expect them to share too many attributes, especially not the
opening hours, but that might differ of course.

Although I have to say in this context that I am not a big fan of an
overly strict interpretation of the "Relations are not Categories" rule.
IMHO OSM uses too few relations where it should (streetnames!)

Kind regards/Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Stefan Tauner
