EXCITING NEWS: Exterior Construction has begun on the NEW Claverack Library!

What does this mean for you?


  • You will not be able to park in the area shared by the current and the new library for the next few weeks.
  • Our very generous neighbors have given us permission to use their parking areas while construction is taking place.
  • We request the three spaces adjacent to the library sidewalk be saved for handicapped and 15 minutes or less parking.
  • Additionally, if you’re planning to donate books for the spring book sale, we request that you hold off until after the new year. We are no longer able to house them in the grey storage container and our space to sort and house them is very limited.

Thank you for your support as we look to the future and move closer to relocating!
