As an extra precaution to help slow the spread of COVID-19, Governor Cuomo has ordered 100% of non-essential workers to stay home. Although we know the Library is a vital part of any community – we are not included in the list of “essential workers.” As such, the Library will remain closed until further notice, and staff will no longer be present in the building as of 2pm today, Friday March 20.
Please note, all due dates on any Library material currently checked out has been extended to April 6th. All overdue fines will be waived through April, at least. Please hang on to your Library materials until we are able to open again. They will not be overdue – you will not be charged overdue fines on those.
This is a truly unprecedented time. We are deeply saddened that we must close our doors completely to you all. Staff will still be checking the firstname.lastname@example.org email periodically – and we will check phone messages daily. However, we will only be able to have the same access to the Library catalog as you. We will NOT be able to place holds on any library materials whatsoever.
With your Library card – you will have access to our e-collection through OverDrive. If you need help navigating OverDrive or the Libby app – you can send us an email and we will do our best to assist you.
We understand how disappointing and scary this all is. We will keep you updated on our status through this whole process. Please follow us on social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) as we will be sharing information that may be helpful, and we’ll try to keep you entertained as well.
Thank you for your continued support and understanding. We look forward to the day when we can open our doors again. In the meantime – be well and take care of each other.
