A Message From our Director

Dear Patrons,

The Kirkland Town Library remains open for access to our many services. Our recent investment in three top-of-line air purifiers, along with the enhanced cleaning protocols we have in place, give the library a strong defense against the coronavirus.

A big thank you to all our patrons who are respectful of our requirements to sanitize their hands, maintain at least six feet of physical distance from others, and wear a mask that covers the nose and mouth.

Nevertheless, the increase in infection rates warrants an additional precaution. Effective immediately, we will limit the time one can be inside the library to 15 minutes. This new protocol aligns with the CDC guidance.

Curbside service remains available, as does home delivery. Please contact the library for more information on either of these options.

Also, thank you in advance for understanding that it may take longer for a request (hold) to be fulfilled, and for items to be removed from your card.

Serving our community safely is our highest priority, and I welcome your comments.

Sincerely,

Anne Debraggio, Director

We’ll Get You Through The Winter
Jan 6 – Jan 31 all-day

Winters in Central New York can be long, cold, and snowy. The Kirkland Town Library is here to help pass the time until the spring sunshine with unique activities for all ages designed to bust your boredom.

This month, all of our activities center around the theme of “nourish.” We want to help you nourish your mind, body, relationships, and soul as we begin this New Year.

The program continues in February with “explore” and March with “create.”

Visit our special webpage for all the details and to get started.

Make a Bath Bomb
Jan 20 – Jan 22 all-day

Stop by our curbside pick-up area and grab a kit with supplies to make your own bath bomb (while they last). It’s activity 15 in our “Get You Through the Winter” program so you’ll be able to check something off your game board AND make yourself something to relax and unwind. What could be more nourishing?
