Please note, due to restrictions on public meetings due to COVID-19 – and the poor weather predicted for the evening, the Fallsburg Library Board of Trustees’ meeting scheduled for April 23, 2020 at 5:15pm will be held online via Zoom beginning at 5pm. For the link and password to join the meeting, please email email@example.com prior to 4:45pm on 4/23/2020.
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.
Due to safety concerns surrounding COVID-19, and in an attempt to help slow the spread of it, the Library will be closed to the public until further notice. There will be staff available to answer phone calls and emails Monday – Friday 10am-2pm.
Due dates for materials currently checked out have been extended to April 6th and overdue fines will be waived through April – so hang on to your items until then.
Thank you for your continued support and understanding.
The Fallsburg Library will be closed to the public Sunday March 15 and Monday March 16. We will be re-evaluating the situation with COVID-19 and working on ways to continue to serve our community – while also taking steps to help slow down the spread of coronavirus. We thank you for your patience, understanding, and continued support.
