  • Interlibrary Loan and Connect New York
    • All services are up and running. Please note that many libraries are still not lending materials, therefore securing materials for patrons will be additionally challenging at this time.
  • Quarantine
    • Please know that current quarantine guidelines require a three day waiting period to help ensure that incoming materials are COVID-free, including materials recently returned, obtained through ILL and CNY, and materials used in the Library. These materials are made available after three days. Thank you for your patience while we work to help stop the spread.
