WE’RE BACK!! (sorta)
We hope that this finds you and your families well as we continue to navigate this crazy, ever changing world. Although the COVID-19 pandemic has made us shut our physical doors, we have continued to provide services online through the OverDrive and Libby apps, Rosetta Stone Language Online Software, and dozens of other databases – all FREE with your library card! Our summer reading program has gone virtual this year too, so be sure to download the ReadSquared App today, and start tracking yours and your children’s summer reading. But, if you’re like so many of us – you’re probably feeling some ‘screen fatigue’ which we can happily help you with also!
The Fallsburg Library is offering curbside services, and has been for about 1 ½ months. You can go into our online catalog to request materials (though please note it will be limited to ‘C Route’ items only – which you’ll notice in the drop down menu), email us at, or call 845-436-6067, we’ll pull what is available for you, check it out to you, set up an appointment for you to come pick up the materials, and run those materials out to you when you arrive at the Library! You can also email us items that you might need printed off, or set up an appointment to come and have materials copied and/or faxed. While receiving curbside services, we just ask that you wear a mask, as we’ll be wearing ours.
For the little ones this summer, we have also been doing weekly craft kits, with tutorials being posted weekly on our Facebook page. Call or email Miss Amanda at to reserve your craft kits today! We do have a limited supply from previous weeks, so reach out today!
And finally, the Library is finalizing plans to resume limited, in building use of the Library – all of which will be done on an appointment only basis. You can call, email, check our website,, or follow us on social media for the most up to date information. Although we likely won’t be able to be your ‘hang out’ spot for some time, we are here and eager to help you with your information needs in whatever way we can! Thank you for your continued understanding and support as we move forward through these unchartered waters. We hope you continue to be well and we hope to see you soon!
