Winter weather again!

Cobleskill-Richmondville Schools have cancelled the Superintendent’s Conference day and have closed schools due to the winter weather. The library will be closed today, 3/22 in keeping with the Board of Trustees approved Operating Schedule and policy on unexpected closures.

Friends of the Community Library

The Friends will be having their next meeting on Saturday, December 8 at 10:30 AM at the library. We’ll be talking about our logo, the year ahead and other regular business.

The Friends help support the library through fundraising toward great library programs and services. It’s always good to find new members interested in helping serve their community and their library!

It’s getting colder . . .

As we get further along in the year, keep in mind the library’s policy on weather-related closings. Simply put, the library will not open for public service when the Cobleskill-Richmondville School District is closed due to weather related emergencies.

The decision regarding closure may be made by the Director based on weather reporting or in consultation with local safety authorities, maintenance personnel, library personnel including staff and the President of the Board of Trustees.

For closures at times where the library is already open, library staff will instruct patrons on how to remain safe in either exiting the building or remaining in the library. Notice of library closure will be made available to the public using the most readily accessible means including listings in broadcast media, via the Internet, recorded telephone greeting, and physical signage.
