What Does the Claverack Library Moving Period Mean for YOU?



How will we get the contents of our little library moved by October 26? And how will it affect you?

October 11 will be our last day operating in the current library. Many of you have seen some changes and movement of materials in the last weeks to get ready. A corps of volunteers will be at work to move the materials to the new library. The last day to pick up item holds at the current library will be 10/10, though the library will be open on 10/11 we will not have any of the hold items available. 

From October 11 until October 26 the Philmont Public Library in Philmont will be taking in our “hold” items. These are items that patrons have reserved from other libraries. Philmont Library will send out phone or email notices, in just the same way we do at Claverack Library. You will need to pick them up from the Philmont Library and follow their loan rules. Your items can be returned to any open library in the Mid-Hudson library system and many of your items won’t be due until after we open the new library.

The Claverack Library will not be able to accept returns of library material between Saturday, October 12 and Friday, October 25. There will be no items checked out from the Claverack Library with a due date that falls between those days. We will have extended return dates due to the closure of the library. 

Thank you for your patience throughout the move. And be sure to join us for the grand opening on Saturday, October 26th from noon until 4:00 p.m.

We look forward to serving you at the new, enhanced Claverack Free Library!
