Everything You Need to Know About Visiting Libraries in the New York Area

Everything You Need to Know About Visiting Libraries in the New York Area

Here's a list of all of the libraries in Westchester, Rockland, Nassau, and Suffolk counties and their adjusted hours and offerings due to coronavirus.


This summer of social distancing is the perfect time to create (and finish) a summer reading list—whether you've been an avid reader your whole life or just picked up the habit recently. Luckily, New York City's public libraries, as well as many libraries on Long Island and in Westchester and Rockland counties, are set to reopen in July for curbside pickup so you can safely borrow as many books as your (or your child's) heart desires.

Safely Visiting the Library During COVID-19

While curbside and grab-and-go are the safest ways to borrow books right now, you may be missing the smell of old books and itching to get between the stacks. The libraries that will offer limited indoor access will be required to follow safety guidelines from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Library Association regarding the handling of materials:

Furniture will be rearranged to maintain social distancing, with floor decals and signs sending traffic in one direction. They will use EPA-certified cleaning products and offer hand sanitizer, including wipes for the computers to be used after each visitor. Returned books will be quarantined off-site before reentering circulation. Staff members will be provided gloves and masks and will clean surfaces like door and toilet handles every two hours. All branches will limit capacity and activity. There won’t be any gatherings or community events, and only 50 people will be allowed inside at a time.

Harvey Karp, M.D, pediatrician and author of Happiest Baby on the Block, urges people to limit the touching of shared surfaces while visiting a library and to follow all of the recommended COVID-19 safety precautions we have been thus far (wearing a face covering, staying home if you're sick, refraining from touching your face, using hand sanitizer, etc.).

How Curbside Pickup at the Library Works

For curbside pickup, library staff will have the books set out on a shelf, ready to go with your name on them so all you'll have to do when you arrive is pick them up.  If you’re concerned that germs are hitching a ride home on the books you borrow, Harvey Karp, M.D, pediatrician and author of Happiest Baby on the Block urges you to bag up your library haul and leave it in the car, garage, or entryway for a couple of days.

“From what we understand of Coronavirus, even though surface transmission isn’t typical, the virus may be able to live on surfaces for up to two to three days," says Dr. Karp.

Start with this list of kids books about diversity, race, and inclusion. Or maybe you'll check out some of these LGBTQ+ books for all ages in honor of Pride Month that just passed. Whatever you choose to borrow, it will be nice to finally expand the bedtime story options once again. Here's a list of libraries in the New York metro area complete with what they offer and their hours right now:
