News and Events
UPDATED MARCH 24, 2020
While remaining hopeful that this isn’t a long-term situation, we have decided, after careful consideration, to extend our closures beyond the originally stated date of March 31. As of now, Rensselaerville Library will be closed until further notice to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Due to the rapidly-changing nature of this public health crisis, the Library feels it is best to keep our reopening date open-ended, rather than share hypothetical dates that, by necessity, might need to shift. Also, all programs previously scheduled for April have been cancelled. We hope you understand and we will update you as soon as possible.
Recognizing the impact that extended closures will have on you, all materials borrowed from our library and through the Upper Hudson Library System will now be due on or after May 1, 2020. Staff will continue to check the drop-off box if you would like to return items sooner.
We encourage all of you to explore the online resources that are available to you 24/7 throughout the year. You can follow the links provided on our website at www.rensselaervillelibrary.org or go directly to the Upper Hudson Library System's Resources for Library Users During COVID-19 Outbreak by clicking the button below.
We miss all of you and look forward to the time we can open our doors to you once more. Keep in touch! Sign up for our newsletter at https://www.rensselaervillelibrary.org/get-our-enewsletter.html. “Like” us on Facebook for further updates and additional resources. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to hear from you.
Be well and take care of each other.
