*** Library Reopening Status ***

The Library continues to abide by Governor Cuomo’s executive orders for phased re-openings, which currently do not authorize association libraries to do so. Only municipal/governmental libraries have been authorized to provide curbside service at this time.

We understand your frustration and are very eager to begin lending library materials, but our priority must be legal adherence to government mandates, while ensuring the safety and well-being of our staff and patrons. The Library’s reopening plans will be communicated as soon as we have an effective date, authorized by an executive order from the Governor.

Please continue to enjoy our remotely accessible resources and send any questions or requests for assistance to lagrangelibrary@laglib.org. We will answer them promptly! Until further communication, please stay informed, be smart, and take good care!

With kind regards,
Mary De Bellis
Library Director

Library Relocation Update

Along with the rest of New York State, the new LaGrange Library in Town Center is on PAUSE until the ban on nonessential construction is lifted. While we cannot predict when business will get back to normal, our contractor is waiting in the wings, ready to go full steam ahead, when given the green light. Although the relocation timeline has been setback a bit, we remain optimistic and excited about the future of the new LaGrange Library!

Please remember that the renovation costs will not be paid for by town tax money, but through the Library's building fund, grants, and contributions from our community and local business partners.

We know that the economic climate is hard right now. If you feel you can contribute to the Library’s Capital Campaign, please help. If you cannot, we ask that you please remember us when you can.

For further details on the relocation, how to donate, and naming opportunities, please go to http://lagrangelibrarycampaign.org/

Or check out our GoFundMe (and SHARE with your social media friends) at: https://www.gofundme.com/f/lagrange-library-relocation

If you would rather make a donation via mail or PayPal, make sure you specify that it is for the "Capital Campaign". Any and all donations are greatly appreciated!
