Visitors are currently welcome to the Patterson Library by appointment. Thirty-minute appointments are available for browsing the collection and the Family Center, as well as for faxing, scanning and copying. One hour appointments are available for using a computer. Call 845-878-6121 x 10 to make an appointment.

Masks will be required for all visitors 2 years of age and over and social distancing rules will apply. You can read about our Safe Practices Policy here. During this phase of our reopening, the Community Room, Café, and Study Room will not be available for public use, and our programs will continue to be conducted virtually.

Expanded online resources, curbside services, and the lending of laptops for use on-premises will continue to be offered.

The safety of our staff and patrons is our top priority as we move through our Phased Reopening Plan. We will continue to post updates to our operating status on our website, social media pages and through our enewsletter. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions at

Stephanie Harrison, Director
