An Update on Library Services

We would like to wish everyone a happy and healthy new year.

The library’s hours have temporarily changed. Monday through Thursday, the library will close at 8PM. This minor adjustment in service hours was implemented to provide flexibility in staffing.

Currently, the library is arranged to offer a grab-and-go experience. Your visit should be completed within 30 minutes, and that includes your internet session on the library’s computers.  Use of personal computing devices such as laptops and tablets is prohibited.  Proper mask-wearing is compulsory, and social distancing of at least six feet should be maintained.

We are limiting the size of groups entering the building. Only three people per household or group may enter per day. We have found that larger groups stayed longer times and made social distancing from other patrons difficult. We will be continuing our policy of limiting the occupancy of the building.

We will also continue to offer curbside and portico pickup. Click here to place a hold through our online catalog or call (845) 634-4997 x125 for adult and teen materials or x121 for children’s materials.  To notify staff that you’ve arrived to pick up your materials, dial x124. Please note that curbside pickup will end a half an hour before closing. 

Thank you very much for your cooperation.  Please bear in mind that in this ever-changing scenario, the library may have to make sudden changes to our operations and services.  We regret any inconvenience that may result but please know that we are acting in the interest of safety for patrons and staff.
