COVID-19 Update

The Kirkland Town Library will be open on Sunday, March 15, from 12:00 noon to 4 p.m, but will close on March 16th because of the COVID-19 pandemic. We will continue to monitor the outbreak to determine when it is appropriate to reopen.

The library has almost 6,000 visits and more than 7,000 items cross our desks each month. This translates into a lot of personal interactions – and that is at the heart of the KTL. Closing is a difficult decision, but it will help protect the health of our community members and staff, and minimize the opportunities for transmission of the virus.

The decision follows a recommendation from the New York Library Association and was informed by information from the CDC and New York State Department of Health.

We know many in our community rely on the library, so staff members will continue to provide limited services for patrons. You can reach us by calling 315-853-2038, emailing clinton@midyork.org, or messaging us on Facebook.  You will still be able to get books, DVDs and other material – albeit in a unique way.  Please check back for details.

We appreciate your support as we do our part to help slow the spread of COVID-19.

Here’s to your health and to taking care of one another,

Anne M. Debraggio, Director
