New Expanded Hours!

We are pleased to announce expanded hours and services!

  • Curbside Pick-up will be available at the Main Library on Tuesdays 4-5 and Thursdays 11-12.
  • Seating and computers are available at both locations.
  • Children’s toys will remain unavailable for the time being.
  • Meeting Rooms will be available for reservation starting in September.
You may notice that these expanded hours are different from our pre-pandemic hours. Years of near stagnant budgets and increased costs have impacted our staffing, which has long-term effects on the days and hours we are able to open. While we’ve had to cut back on some days, we have actually expanded our hours on Saturdays at the Main Library, and the Carnegie Library will now regularly be open on Saturdays!

Our online services – such as our e-book platforms, the digital edition of the New York Times, Tumblebooks for kids, and other databases on a variety of topics – will be available 24/7, as always.

We will continue to look for opportunities to increase staffing and access to the library’s many services, including through the new City Services Fee.

We look forward to having you back in the library!
