Library

Since the Saratoga Springs Public Library is in a confined space and serves vulnerable populations, the Library will be locking our front door beginning Saturday, March 14th. We hope to make this experience a little easier for our customers by implementing Drive-Up Service.

  • All City Events are canceled or postponed until further notice, this includes all Library programs.
  • Closed to the public starting Saturday, March 14.
    • Unfortunately at this time we cannot offer class visits or proctoring.
  • Limited services available starting March 16.
    • Drive up service available starting March 16. Place items on hold and when they’ve arrived we will deliver them to your car. 
    • New cardholder applications will be processed if they attach the photo ID and proof of address to the application.
    • Digital services remain available.
  • Returns
    • Items will not be due from March 14th to March 29th (or until the Governor’s recommendations are updated). 
    • No overdue fines will accrue until after the library reopens to the public.
    • If you have a popular item with a hold we do ask that you bring it back when you are able to.
    • Please return your Kits, Launchpad’s, pickle ball sets, and literacy materials in the bin by the Library’s entrance, and knock on the door. Staff will retrieve them.
    • DVD’s, video games, audio books and books can be returned in the media and book drops on the south side of the building.
    • All items will be sanitized, cleaned and quarantined for 72 hours, before they are available for use.
