Summer Heat

We want to thank you for your understanding as the library is struggling with the heat this summer. We know this situation is difficult and frustrating.

Many have asked why it is taking so long to repair the AC. We wish it was a matter of simply repairing a part, but our whole HVAC system needs to be replaced.

We have been working since last summer on grants and funding opportunities for this project and have raised a little over $500,000 for the project.

Currently, our mechanical and electrical designs are done and we are working on getting our structural engineering designs complete.

After these are ready, we will be going out for bids to find a company to complete the construction work.

On days that the library closes early due to heat, a staff member will remain to provide curbside services. This includes picking up materials, making copies, and printing.

If you have any questions about this project, please contact me at or 845-677-3611 x 3.

Unite Against Book Bans

Unite Against Book Bans is a national initiative to empower readers everywhere to stand together in the fight against censorship.

Book bans harm communities.

Students cannot access critical information to help them understand themselves and the world around them. Parents lose the opportunity to engage in teachable moments with their kids. And communities lose the opportunity to learn and build mutual understanding.

Although book bans are nothing new, there were more censorship attempts in 2021 than at any time since the American Library Association began tracking more than two decades ago.
