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.

We’d love to know about the great reads you’ve had during Summer Reading! Please bring in your reading or activity logs to get prizes, help us vote for charities to support, and let us know what you love best during Summer Reading! Ask at the desk . . .

Donating Books

We are now able to accept your book donations!

Our partners at Better World Books have shared a bright green Drop Box with us. With it, we can send our community’s book donations and discards out to be sold online. The library and literacy partners around the world receive portions of the proceeds, so your donations really make a difference to us here and those in need.

Only return library items to the Returns Box at the front door. Please do not leave library items in the bright green Drop Box. Library items left in the Better World Books Drop Box near the south stairs will not be able to be checked in and may result in library charges.
