Computer usage days are still Tuesday and Thursday from 10 AM-4 PM, by appointment only.  Patrons can reserve a computer for 1 hour/person/day on those days.  Please arrive at least 5 minutes early so the staff may take your temperature and ask a few health-related questions.

IF, at a later date, NY State, by an Executive Order of Governor Cuomo, decides that the current health crisis has reached a level that it is necessary to suspend operations of non-essential businesses and services, which may include libraries, the Richards Library will suspend operations.  Also, if the current health situation in Warren County should see an increase in the infection rate, the library will suspend browsing until such time that it is safe again to allow patrons in to browse.

If you have any questions, please call the library at 518-623-3011. Please share this on your other social media platforms that connect you with other residents of Warrensburg and Thurman. Thank you!!
