Limited In-Person Service Resumes
The North Greenbush Public Library has begun a careful, phased process of resuming limited in-person service, by appointment only. Appointment times are Mon, Wed & Fri between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. and Tues & Thurs between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. Appointments are limited to 20 minutes to accommodate social distancing, cleaning and disinfecting.
All patrons entering the library must wear a mask that covers their nose and mouth. Please call the library at 518-283-0303 to make an appointment. Patrons can begin calling for appointments on Friday, July 10. The library’s popular Grab ’N’ Go pick-up option will continue during this time.
Our phased reopening plan is based on guidance from the state, CDC, WHO and Upper Hudson Library System, placing the highest priority on the health and well-being of our patrons and our staff. With this commitment and challenge in mind, we will regularly be reviewing the plan. Thank you for your continued patience and understanding as we work to safely resume library services.
Feel free to email any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 518-283-0303.
“Grab & Go” Contactless Book Pick-up
The hours for “Grab and Go” contact-less library material pick up are:
- Mon, Wed & Fri 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
- Tues & Thurs 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Patrons can request items using our online catalog or by calling us at 518-283-0303. Initially we are limiting requests to 5 items per card. You will be notified when your materials are ready for pick up. Once notified, you may come pick up your items during our pick up hours (MWF 10-2 or TuTh 3-7.)
We ask that you call the library when you arrive in the parking lot and library staff will place a bag with your items on the table in the lobby next to the library entrance. Please wear a mask and practice social distancing when you come into the lobby to take the bag with your last name on it. All items in the bag will be checked out to you and stamped with a due date. Place any items you have to return in the outside drop boxes on your way by. Please do not place returns on the pick up table.
We’re excited to get started! We appreciate your continued support and patience as we take this step. Please email any questions to email@example.com or call us at 518-283-0303.
