Book Drop Open & Lobby Pickup Service to Begin

The Library Book Drop is OPEN as of Friday, June 12th.   The Drop is located outside at the back corner of the building.  If the drop seems full, please wait until another day to return items.  Anything that had a due date of March 15th or later has been extended to September 30th so there is no need to try to get everything back by June 30th.  If you happen to have a lot of items from a neighboring library it would be helpful to take those items directly to that library, but make sure their drop is open first.  We will accept items from other libraries in our system but they will be delayed returning to their home library since delivery service will be very limited. 

Items going into the book drop will immediately be placed in quarantine for 72 hours before being checked in.  If it looks like an item is still on your account, that is likely the reason why it's still showing up.  A grace period will also be in effect for returned items so your returned materials will not accumulate fines while sitting in quarantine. 

Staff are returning next week and will be busy getting the building in order for reopening.  We would like to begin Lobby Pickups by appointment starting Monday, June 22nd.  All requests for items will need to come by phone (315-483-9292) or e-mail: until our holds feature is turned on by the library system.  Only Sodus items will be available for the time being.  The best way to see what we have is to browse the online catalog at and change the location to Sodus.  Staff will call you to set up a pickup time when your items are ready. 

We will be adding back services as the weeks progress and we'll keep you updated on the changes.  We are looking forward to seeing all of you very soon!
