Westerlo Library Notes for Saturday, June 20, 2020

Congratulations to the class of 2020! The Town of Westerlo Public Library recognizes this special achievement in your life especially during these unusual circumstances.

Happy Father’s Day! Wishing all of the dads a very special Father’s Day this weekend! 


Porch pickup coming soon

Some good news from our library! We will soon be offering you the opportunity to start picking up requested materials safely from the porch of the library. 

The start date will be announced on our Facebook page and our Website.

Here’s how it will work:

1. Place holds online through the catalog or by calling 518-797-3415. You will need your library card available to do this online. We can look you up if you call us.

Items requested from Westerlo Library may be the quickest to get to you since all items from other libraries need to be quarantined before coming to our library. We ask your patience as we are putting patrons’ safety first.             

2. Items will be collected by library staff, who will be wearing face masks and following CDC handwashing guidelines, and then you will be called to schedule a pickup time: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday or Friday 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.; Wednesday or Saturday 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. 

3. Your materials will be checked out to you, labeled with your name and placed on the porch at your scheduled pickup time. Items not picked up by the end of the shift will be placed inside and you will be called to set up another pick up time. 

4. Please wait for staff or other patrons to leave the porch area before getting your items.

5. All returns must be placed in the book drop outside.  

All materials are being quarantined when they are returned.
