Lucky 13th!

The roof construction has moved far enough along so that we can resume onsite services on Tuesday, October 13. We will have regular Curbside Pickup and Browsing by Appointment (including the Children’s Room) hours. There will bins outside for returns from 9am to 4:30pm. We aren’t charging for any overdues, so you don’t have to rush to get things back on Tuesday. Holds sent to us from other libraries will be delayed, as they still have to be quarantined upon arrival here. Librarians will be answering phones at the usual times and hours (914) 834-2281 x.3 for Adult and x4 for the Children’s Room) Finally, if you had something already on the Holds Shelf before we closed for construction, please pick it up by the Wednesday, October 14th.

RBdigital Audiobooks are now in Overdrive/Libby

If you’re an avid audiobook listener, we have good news. Rather than having to search in three different places for audiobooks online, now you only have to look in two- Overdrive/Libby and Hoopla. RBdigital audiobooks has been absorbed into Overdrive/Libby which means anything previously available on RBdigital is now there. The changeover began Oct. 7 and may take up to 24 hours to complete. Rbdigital Magazines and RBdigital Entertainment are unchanged.
