TO: Valley Cottage Library Community

FROM: Amelia Kalin, Library Director


After carefully monitoring the rapidly changing situation regarding novel coronavirus (COVID19), the Valley Cottage Library is temporarily closing to the public from March 14 through March 18. We’re taking this step to allow staff to care for themselves and their families as we model and practice “social distancing”, which has been identified as an effective tool for slowing the spread of COVID-19. We want to do our part to keep our community healthy.

We anticipate that we may need to extend the closure for an additional period of time as many of our regional libraries have done. We will keep you informed of planned changes to the period of closure. Please check our website or social media accounts -- Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram -- for any status updates.
