Hagaman Memorial Library to Begin Reopening in Stages

The Hagaman Memorial Library, 227 Main Street, will begin to reopen the library in stages in order to protect the safety of employees and patrons.

The first stage of the reopening will be from June 4 (Thursday) – June 12 (Friday) with the library building remaining closed to the public.  In the first stage, library employees will be returning to answer the public’s telephone calls and to handle the curbside return of library materials.  During the first stage the library’s public service hours for answering telephone calls and for the curbside return of library materials are the following:

-June 4 (Thursday):  1:30 pm – 5 pm

-June 5 (Friday):  1:30 pm – 5 pm

-June 8 (Monday):  1:30 – 5 pm

-June 9 (Tuesday):  1:30 pm – 8 pm

-June 10 (Wednesday):  1:30 pm – 8 pm

-June 11 (Thursday):  1:30 pm – 8 pm

-June 12 (Friday):  1:30 pm – 5 pm

If you would like to call the library during the above hours, please call the library’s main phone number at 203-468-3890.

When the curbside return service begins on June 4, please do not use the library’s book drop, which will remain closed off.  Instead, bring library materials to the back public entrance of the library building and you will be directed as how to return materials.  Curbside return transactions will be entirely contactless for the safety of patrons and library staff.  This means patrons are to wear facemasks as will library staff.

All curb side returned library materials will be initially quarantined for 72 hours.  Only after the quarantine period will materials be checked in.  Thus, returned library materials will still appear on patron accounts until after the 72 hour quarantine time is up, at which time the materials will be checked in and taken off patron accounts.  There will not be overdue fines charged on the materials returned.
