Welcome !

We continue to operate our normal business hours, Monday – Saturday.

Facial coverings of the nose AND mouth, hand sanitizing as well as temperature scanning are all required upon entering the building. .

As New York State moves forward with reopening plans, so will the Mechanicville District Public Library. As we push forward into our reopening plans, patrons will be allowed the following:

  1. No appointment is necessary, although we do require you to wear a mask. If you can not wear a mask, we require you to make an appointment with our Director to use our library. We require that upon entering the library, you use the hand sanitation station & take your temperature before proceeding into the library collection.
  2. We will continue to offer Contactless Curbside service.
  3. Inter-library loan service is up and we are receiving and sending materials to our neighboring libraries.
  4. Library materials may be returned inside during business hours. Items will no longer be quarantined.
  5. Computer stations are open and on a first come, first serve basis. We currently have six stations available due to COVID-19 social distancing.
  6. Library services such as copying, faxing, printing and notary are all available.
  7. Meeting Room Space is open only to visitors doing school work/research and pre-approved clubs. . Reservations are required to use the room. A Room Request form must be filled out and approved prior to the day of your visit. Visitors must sanitize, wear a mask at all times, complete a COVID-19 questionnaire and temperature screening on the day of their arrival prior to using the space.

We are not accepting book donations.
