Due to the dramatic increase in COVID-19 cases and the declaration of a state of emergency in St. Lawrence County, we will suspend library visits for browsing and computer usage indefinitely. Out of an abundance of caution for the safety of our patrons, staff, and community we feel it prudent to return to Phase 3 of our re-opening plan.
The following library services are available in Phase 3:
Curbside pickup of all materials:
Books, audiobooks, DVDs, games, and craft bags.
Request items through the online catalog or call the library if you don’t have access to a computer or are unfamiliar with the reserve system. You will be called to pick them up.
Not sure what book to read next? Ask us for help! We’ll suggest titles and authors based on your interests.
We’d also be pleased to just put together a selection of new books for you.
Interlibrary loan will continue.
Patrons may return their library materials in our book drop for processing.
