Aug 21: Library Closes for Renovations

renov It is once again that time of the year, when we close down for a short period of time in order to continue our multi-phase interior renovation project.  We will be closed from Thursday August 21st until Tuesday Sept 3rd. During that period of time, no library materials will be due and access to the building will be limited. Patrons can return materials to our outside drop-slot. Reserves will be blocked while we are closed, unless you designate a nearby library for pick-up, such as Clifton Park or Mechanicville.  We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the closure and appreciate your patience while we strive to make our library ever better.
