From the Fallsburg Library

Happy June everyone! As we continue to take baby steps towards reopening, we have some new updates to inform you of. First, beginning June 6, we will be adding Sunday hours back into the library’s schedule. Our new schedule will be as follows: Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays 9:30 a.m.- 4 p.m., Tuesdays and Wednesdays 10:30 a.m.- 6 p.m., and Sundays 9 a.m.- 1 p.m. Please note that we are still requiring face masks to be worn by anyone over the age of 2, regardless of vaccination status. The Board of Trustees will revisit this at their Monthly Board Meeting on June 24. Please also note that we are still limiting in building use to 30 minutes per person per day, but are accommodating walk-ins whenever possible. We still strongly encourage appointments for computer use, as we are still not able to have all computers in use at the same time.
We are still checking materials in ‘fine free,’ and will continue to do so through the end of June – so if you have an item that you forgot you took out, it’s not too late to return it. Get it to us before the end of June and there will be no fines associated with its extended stay in your home.
We are still offering our “Craft Kits to Go!” Be sure to check our Facebook page, or request to be added to our email list, to see what the latest offering is. You can call Miss Amanda at 845-436-6067 ext. 102, or email her at to see about reserving your kit today! Just please be sure to pick up your kit(s) if you reserve one – you could be keeping someone else from making a fun craft otherwise, as a limited number of kits are made.
As we inch closer to Summer Reading – please note that we will be doing it virtually again this year. We’re very excited to be partnering with Page Turner Adventures to offer 6 weeks of daily online activities – from stories to crafts, geared towards those ages 5 – 11. Stay tuned for more information – or contact Miss Amanda to find out how to sign up!
No library card? No problem! Just give us a call or send us an email, and we’ll let you know what we need from you to get a card set up. For a Fallsburg Library card you must live within the Fallsburg Central School District – if you do not and you are unsure of what library is your “home” library, give us a call and we can direct you to the right library.
Stay up to date with the latest library updates by following our Facebook page or visiting our website, As always, thank you for continued support and patience. We wouldn’t be able to do what we do without your support. Be well!
