Curbside Service ONLY will resume on Monday, November 30th

Due to the rising numbers of COVID-19 cases in our area, Dobbs Ferry Public Library will return to Curbside Pickups only on Monday, November 30.  Appointments for in-library services will no longer be taken after Sunday, November 29.  We will resume in-library service as soon as numbers indicate it is safe to do so.  Reference services will continue to be available during our regular hours and pick-ups will be scheduled so as to remain socially distanced.  All previously scheduled Zoom programs will remain as currently scheduled. Please wear your masks, wash your hands and stay safe this Holiday Season.

To schedule a pickup, call the library at (914)693-6614 or use the app to schedule a pickup at this link.
