Due to confirmed cases of coronavirus in Albany County, Guilderland Public Library is closed until Monday, March 23. This is a necessary step during extraordinary times to effectively “flatten the curve” via social distancing and slow the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic. We are constantly monitoring this evolving situation and consulting with experts and officials. Trusted information sources are listed on our website’s “Coronavirus Update” link.
We will strive to keep you updated via email, www.guilderlandlibrary.org, social media channels and our electronic sign, and we encourage you to access our eBooks and eMagazines, RB Digital streaming service and digital NY Times remotely. If you need a library card, please go to https://sierra.uhls.org/selfreg. While we are closed, our book drops are locked. All fines are waived as long as we remain closed.
We appreciate your understanding and patience as we navigate this situation, which we hope is temporary. We urge you to follow all recommended protocols to remain healthy.

RB Digital streaming service, which features AcornTV (popular British TV shows), Qello (a variety of concerts), IndieFlix (acclaimed independent films), and The Great Courses (hundreds of topics promoting lifelong learning).
