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!
