White Plains Public Library to reopen to the public on July 28th

White Plains Public Library

Welcome Back!


We are excited to reopen the Library this Tuesday, July 28th—a milestone on the way to full library services.


The Library is opening solely for you to browse and borrow our wonderful collection. There is no seating, computers, copies, or café at this time.


To follow state guidelines, we must limit the number of patrons that can access the Library at any one time. Visit the library’s website for more details about the reopening.


Here’s how it works:


Access to the Library’s first floor collections—including all adult and teen materials—is on a first come, first served basis. Once the Library reaches capacity, please wait outside the building, six feet apart, for patrons to leave. You must have a card from a Westchester Library System member library to enter.


If you want to visit the Trove, call (914) 422-1476 and schedule an appointment. You must have a White Plains library card to book a Trove visit. One appointment a week.


All visits are for 45 minutes or less.


The Library is open Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Friday and Saturday, 1 to 5 p.m. No new visitors will be admitted after 6 p.m. Monday–Thursday and 4 p.m. Friday & Saturday.


Please remember:


If you are two and older, wear a face mask at all times.


Observe social distancing.  Adhere to the Library’s COVID-19 Best Practices Policy. Stay home if you aren’t feeling well.


For browsing, use the gloves we provide. Hand sanitizer is stationed throughout the building.


Return all material through the book drops.


Borrow all material with the self-check machines.


The elevator is for one user, or one family, at a time.


What about Curbside Pickup?

 

Beginning July 28, the Library will no longer offer Curbside Pickup. Instead, they will implement their holds system, which means we can borrow material from other libraries.


Holds, and remaining Curbside items, will be held in our vestibule, between the doors on the left. They are already checked out to you. Don’t wait on line, just grab and go!


What’s Next?


We look forward to reintroducing more services over the weeks ahead. For our plans, read: Library Building Reopening, a Phased Response.


Our thanks go to the White Plains community for your patience and support over the past four months.
