Wead Library Reopening Soon!

We sincerely thank you for your continued patience as we make plans to reopen and start providing curbside pickup on July 6th.

Beginning June 22nd, both bookdrops will be open for returns.  With over 2,000 materials currently out on loan, we ask to the best of your ability you return the materials before July 6th.

Please note that all returned materials need to quarantine at the library for at least 72 hours and will not show as returned on your card until we can safely check them back in to be enjoyed by the next individual.

Beginning July 1st, you may start submitting requests for curbside pickup.  You may submit them via facebook, phone (518-483-5251), or by emailing weadrequests@gmail.com.  They will be available for pickup beginning July 6th.  All requests must be for our in-house materials, which can be viewed on the Wead Library catalog.  At this time, interlibrary loans are not available.

Fines will still not be charged during this time.

Thank you and we look forward to serving you again soon.

Update – May 13, 2020

The Wead Library continues to monitor county, state, and federal guidelines with regard to the COVID-19 health crisis.  These guidelines tell us we cannot reopen yet.

At this time, the library building will remain closed per these guidelines  We will continue to provide digital resources to our community.  A date for our reopening has not been set.  Libraries fall into phase 4 of Governor Cuomo’s reopening plan estimated to begin anywhere from June 29-July 10 if phases 1-3 go well.

The Wead Library gives priority to the health and safety of our patrons and staff.  You should anticipate a gradual phased restoration of services at this library and other libraries in the Clinton-Essex-Franklin Library System as health conditions allow.

We are grateful to the community’s continued support of the Wead Library and look forward to the improvement of community health conditions that will make the gradual restoration of services possible.  We will provide details as they become available.

Thank you, and stay well,
The Wead Library
