April 12, 2021 Library to Re-Open for Browsing by Appointment

  • OPEN FOR BRIEF IN-PERSON BROWSING, ½ HOUR COMPUTER USE SESSIONS, NOTARY PUBLIC SERVICE, EZPASSES, AND OUTDOOR TERRACE SEATING – One person or family group at a time will be scheduled in 30 minute increments beginning ½ hour after opening and ending 1 hour before closing times.  Call the Circulation Desk at (914) 693-6614 to schedule an appointment. Please arrive on time and ring the doorbell located on the right side of the main entrance to enter.  One first-floor Restroom will be open to the public and will be cleaned once every 24 hours. Children’s toys/manipulatives are unavailable at this time.
  • CONTACTLESS PICKUP CONTINUES – You may still reserve your books, DVDs and takeaway kits either online via the catalog or over the phone with us at (914) 693-6614, during our regular business hours. 
      • Staff will retrieve materials, check them out to you, and bundle your items together (please limit your holds to 10 items per pickup). Bundles will be labeled with your last name.
      • When you get the notification that your holds are in, use the app to schedule your pickup at this link:  Curbside Pickup.  You may also call us to schedule an appointment for pickup. Please pick up your items at your scheduled time, or you will have to reschedule if you miss your appointment. 
      • When you have received your pick-up time,  come to the Library and park in the designated 15 minute parking space in front of the building.  For your safety, the outer doors of the vestibule will be open (good airflow) and the inner doors will remain closed at all times.  Please leave returned materials in the Book Drop OUTSIDE for quarantining, NOT in the vestibule. 
  • Staff wear gloves and masks at all times when working with library materials entering the building. Materials are still quarantined for 72 hours after return.  Masks are required for patrons and staff at all times.
  • Printing – if you have items to be printed, they may be emailed to the Reference Desk account dobref@wlsmail.org and will be available for curbside pickup, by the same process as other materials. Regular printing prices apply – $0.15/page for black & white, $0.35/page for color. Please leave your payment, exact change only, in a sealed envelope when you pick up your print-outs.
  • LIBRARIANS ADVISORY SERVICE:  Give us a topic, genre, or author you love and we will find  items similar to those, but new to you.  Call or email us at the numbers above and we will select five titles for you to try.
