The NEW LaGrange Library!
1110 Route 55, LaGrangeville
A Note from the Director
Mary M. De Bellis
Library Director
Happy fall to all!

Since the Library relocated in November 2020, it’s been a roller coaster of openings, closings, and procedural changes due to the challenges of the pandemic. Many thanks for your continued patience and flexibility, as we do our best to provide the full range of library services, while keeping the safety of staff and patrons our utmost priority.

We are fortunate to have such beautiful parks in LaGrange, where we are able to hold several programs outside while the weather remains temperate. Our sincere thanks to community partners LaGrange Parks & Rec Dept. and James Baird State Park for their collaboration! As the weather turns cooler, we will slowly transition to inhouse programs, so please check our calendar for upcoming events.

I am happy to relay that the Library's Community and Conference Rooms are now available for use by local groups and organizations. For specific guidelines, please see the Meeting Rooms Policy and Application posted on our website.

Please drop by my office to say hello when you're in the Library - my door is always open. I look forward to seeing you here, out in the community, and at the 200th celebration of the Town of LaGrange!

Stay well,
Mary
The annual Great Give Back is all about helping patrons support their local community. This year we are working with our local animal shelter, Hudson Valley Animal Rescue and Sanctuary (HVARS) by hosting a donation drive for them right here at the library. They are in need of cat and dog food/treats, blankets, puppy pads, and anything from their Amazon Wishlist which can be found here. If you can purchase or already have some of these items new/unopened, please drop them off by the Information Desk inside of the library.

We will be accepting donations now through October 16th. Don't forget to check out our social media pages to get your weekly dose of HVARS cuties!
