Library Relocation Update

Now that the ban on non-essential construction has been lifted for the Mid-Hudson Region, renovations have begun for phase one of the new LaGrange Library in Town Center! We remain cautiously optimistic for relocation sometime this fall. Stay tuned for further updates.

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!

The New LaGrange Library - FAQs

Please submit your questions to lagrangelibrary@laglib.org and we will answer promptly!

 


Passport Services

We offer passport services for new applications and photos by appointment only. For information visit our passport page. Schedule an appointment by phone or online through our Passport Appointment Calendar. It is mandatory to have one appointment per applicant.

Due to the backlog of passports from COVID-19 closures, agencies are not accepting expedited service, and cannot give a time frame on when a passport will be issued, except that it will be delayed significantly.

 


Notary Public Services

We offer free Notary Public services. It's recommended that you call ahead to confirm availability or to request an appointment, if you require a specific time. You must present a valid photo ID in order to have your document notarized.
