A Message From our Director
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.
Anne Debraggio, Director
The October 30 program has been cancelled due to the weather. Grab a book and cozy up to read together at home!
Join Ruth outside for an all-ages story time on our front lawn. Bring a blanket to sit on and wear a face mask. Weather permitting. Space is limited; call 315-853-2038 or email email@example.com to reserve a spot.
Now that the election is over, lets move together as a community by focusing on what we are thankful for by transforming yard signs into displays of gratitude. Stop by the Library to pick up a sign (if you need one), the materials needed to cover it, and instructions for how you can show what you are thankful for. If you have unwanted signs, drop them off at the Library.
Join us on Zoom as Utica Councilperson Delvin J. Moody will lead a discussion based on Ibram X. Kendi’s book “Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America.” Reading the book before the program is encouraged but not required. Please contact your local library for a copy. Presented by Hamilton Employees Against Racism (HEAR) with support from the Kirkland Town Library and Utica Public Library. To register, click here.
Join us outside the Library and choose from a variety of gently worn bracelets, charms, earrings, necklaces, pins, rings, watches, and more. All proceeds benefit the Kirkland Town Library. Shoppers are required to wear a mask, use hand sanitizer, and keep six feet of physical distance while at the sale. In case of inclement weather, the sale will be on Saturday, December 5 from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.
