For the safety and well-being of patrons and staff and the care and preservation of library materials during this time, we have made some temporary changes to Library access.

Library Hours

Until further notice, the Library’s hours are by appointment only from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. 

Library Appointments

Appointments must be arranged at least 3 business days prior to visit, and may be requested via email or by calling the archivist/librarian at 518-463-4478, ext. 415.
Please note: You do not have an appointment scheduled unless you have received confirmation in writing from the archivist/librarian.
