Installation of Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Stations  

In an effort to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions in New York State, the Library is partnering with National Grid and local company Livingston Energy Group to install four EV Charging Stations. As the first certified “green” library in the state, this initiative goes hand-in-hand with our continued efforts to remain environmentally friendly. 

The charging ports will occupy the first four parking spaces along the Library’s sidewalk in front of the building. The installation of these ports was made possible by a grant from National Grid and a generous contribution from the Friends of the Library. There will be no financial impact on library district tax payers, including regular usage. There will be a pay per use charge incurred only by the user. The charging stations are now operational and will be available to the general public 24 hours a day. For more information, click here.

Beginning this week, the Library will begin the first steps towards renovating and updating the Children’s Library. You may notice furniture being rearranged or some areas of the Library closed off. These steps are necessary in order to empty rooms and offices so we can begin painting, recarpeting, construction, etc. We will do our best to minimally impact your use of library space. Please check back for updates and be sure to check out the new and improved Children’s Library soon!
