Library Loft Closes Down Due to Concerns About Virus

Library 3Yet another community institution has now shutdown as a result of the Coronavirus outbreak. Scarsdale Library Director Elizabeth Bermel announced on March 13 that the Scarsdale Public Library will be closed to the public effective 6pm Friday, March 13, 2020. They hope to reopen on Monday, March 23rd, but will re-evaluate as new information becomes available.

Bermel’s email says, “This decision was not made easily or without great consideration as we know how important the Library and the services we provide are to our community. We have considered the fact that a significant portion of our patrons are especially vulnerable to this virus. Please note that no SPL employees have tested positive to COVID-19 and none are subject to any form of restrictions as a result of direct or indirect contact with a confirmed case.”

She noted that the frequency and cleaning of the Library’s temporary quarters, the Library Loft has increased. While closed, the Village of Scarsdale will hire a contractor to perform a complete and thorough cleaning of the Library Loft.

Here’s the status:

All scheduled programs and events are cancelled through March 31st.
Circulation of physical materials will be suspended.
Do not return borrowed materials at this time. The book drop is locked. Do not leave items outside. You will be charged for their replacement costs.
They are waiving all fines incurred through this period.

If you have questions, email the library's email account at scaref@wlsmail.org and they will attempt to respond.
