Good News!

Finally, we have guidance for association libraries!

Thanks to the Mid-Hudson Library System, regional control rooms, NYLA, the Governor’s staff, and a ‘Hail Mary pass’ on Friday by Assembly member Didi Barrett – whose staff made getting association libraries included in NY State’s guidance for libraries their #1 priority over the past two business days, association libraries have been added to the list of libraries that are allowed to open with restrictions in NY state!


“Libraries that are operated by a not-for-profit or other non-governmental organization may perform curbside or “in-store” pickup once the region in which they are located reaches Phase 1 and may perform other ‘in-store’ operations once the region in which they are located reaches Phase 2.”

We’re having a meeting of our board of trustees on Wednesday, June 3rd and by Thursday we should be able to give our patrons a tentative date on when we’ll be able to begin offering curbside service!
