Help Massena Public Library plan for the future!

As part of our effort to continually evaluate our services, Massena Public Library is in the initial stages of formulating a long range plan. The plan will help us prioritize the goals and objectives we hope to achieve over the next few years. In order to ensure that these goals match the needs of the community, we are seeking input from the public in the form of a survey.

The survey will be available online for one month. Paper survey forms are also available at the library through our curbside services. We will use the data gathered from this survey to help determine the goals we will set and the services we will prioritize in our long range plan.

The library wants to hear from you! Click here to take the survey about library services and collections below this message.

Please share this survey with family, friends and anyone interested in the future of Massena Public Library!

COVID-19 UPDATE

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.

Other Library Services

  • Printing and copying - call the library @ (315) 769-9914 for details.

  • Notary by appointment only.

  • Wi-Fi is available outside the library building.  No password is necessary.

  • Programming - virtual and storytime craft bag pickup.

  • Downloadable e-books, e-magazines and audiobooks are available at the eMedia Library.

Library Hours

  • Monday-Friday 9:30am - 5:00pm

  • Saturday 9:30am - 1:00pm

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. Thank you for your cooperation.
