3/30/2020 – UPDATE: We will now be closed through at least 4/19 due to the COVID-19 crisis. Please continue checking back here for updates.
3/15/2020 – We have received new guidance from the New York State Library Association urging all public libraries in New York State to shut down for 2 weeks to help stop the spread of COVID-19. Given this, and the state of emergency that was recently declared in Dutchess County, we will be closing the library to the public until at least April 1st. You will not accrue late fees during this time.
In the meantime, please enjoy our many online resources. If you aren’t familiar with these wonderful resources, please feel free to e-mail us at email@example.com for assistance in getting them set up on your computer, cell phone or tablet.
We appreciate your patience and understanding. It was a hard decision to close, but ultimately the health of our staff, volunteers, and patrons come first. The best way for us to serve you right now is to close down for now and prevent spreading the disease more.
