The next chapter in our building restoration story is about to begin. The lintel, the steel beam over the front doors on which the marble and granite rest, has heavy rust and rust jacking and does not meet the requirements to support the existing load. Work will begin on Monday and continue through to early July to replace the lintel.
The library will be closed Monday June 20 through Monday July 4. This is when the heavy work is scheduled – removing the granite stones and marble over the doors, replacing the lintel and then putting all the pieces back together. Please avoid the building during this time.
If the weather cooperates and all goes as planned, we will reopen on Tuesday July 5 at 10 am.
Things to know while we’re closed:
  • E-mail will be the best way to contact us. Questions can be sent to
  • Due dates have been extended to July 5 for items due June 20 to July 4.
  • The book drop box will not be accessible. Please hold on to items you would like to return until the Library reopens or return items to any Mid-Hudson Library.
  • Stop in to stock up on some good books, a few magazines, a board game and those old movies you’ve been meaning to watch, but do it no later than 1 pm on Saturday June 18.
