Library Hours are Back to Normal!

We are happy to announce that the library is once again open 5 days a week!  Please visit us between 3pm and 7pm on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, between 1pm and 5pm on Thursdays and Fridays, and between 8am and noon on Saturdays.  The library is closed Sundays and Mondays, but the book drop is always available for returns and you may access the Wi-Fi from our parking lot 24/7, no password needed. 

We do require face masks to be worn and that patrons observe social distancing.  Please keep in mind that we are only able to operate at limited capacity, and in the instance of too many patrons at once, we will use a first come, first served principle.  Without using the community room, our maximum capacity at this time is ten guests and one librarian. These rules are in place due to Executive Orders by New York State, and may change at any time.

Two of our four computer stations are available for use, as well as the regular print and copy services. We also have six work stations set up with one chair per table, six feet or more away from other work stations.  Patrons are able to browse the shelves, with the condition that any materials they touch, but do not take home, are placed in the browsed book boxes to be put into quarantine for 72 hours by the librarian.  Our children's corner and makerspace is currently closed, and those hands-on materials are currently unavailable for use.  Hand sanitizer is available in multiple locations throughout the library.  Work and computer stations must be signed out with the librarian prior to use and are sanitized immediately on the patron's departure from the station.  Curbside pickup of materials is available for patrons that do not wish to enter the building.  Please call with your requests during regular hours (315-348-6180) or submit online through NCLS (link at the bottom of the page).  Stay safe and we hope to see or hear from you soon!

     Great News!  The Wild Center in Tupper Lake, NY is reopening for visitors. Why good for you? Earlier this spring, the Lyons Falls Library purchased a membership to the Wild Center to allow our patrons a discount for admission to the museum. The Discovery Pass allows patrons of the library to save over half the normal cost. Adult admission price with the pass for up to two adults is $10 each (normally $22 each). Up to four children ages 5 - 17 are free with the pass. Children 4 and under are always free and are not counted as part of the four free youth admissions. The normal cost for a family of four would be $74. rather than $20 with the pass.

The pass is available at the library. Call the library and leave a message (315-348-6180)  to reserve it. We have only one pass and are asking for a $10 deposit to borrow it. The deposit will be returned with the prompt return of the pass (drop it in the book drop). You can view the Wild Center web site by going to: Here you will find information such as hours, events programs, and more.

We are OPEN For Curbside Pick Up

The Lyons Falls Library is now OPEN for Curbside Pick Up! Patrons can place a hold online or call the library and have us order for you.
When your materials arrive, you will get a call to arrange a time for you to come and pick them up. This will be a contactless pick up. When you arrive at the library, park in front of the building and tap your horn to let staff know you are outside. We will place your books on the back seat or in your trunk for you. Up until now only our collection has been available. On Monday, June 22, patrons may order books throughout the library system once again. The number at the library is 315-348-6180 to order books. We now have an answering machine set up, so leave a message and we will get back to you. Our hours at the library have changed also: Wednesday and Thursday from 10am until 6pm, and Saturday from 8am until noon.
