Mahopac Library will temporarily relocate for several months while renovations to its 19-year-old building on Route 6 are completed.
In June, residents approved a $3.2 million bond to upgrade heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems and improve air sealing and insulation to improve the library energy efficiency.
The library will be closed to the public during the week of September 4-11 to allow staff to move supplies, phones, summer reading books and equipment to its temporary location at 906 Route 6 in Mahopac, between Now Hair and Mahopac Auto Paint & Supplies.
Starting Monday, September 12, the library’s hours of operation in its “home away from home” will be Monday to Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The library will be closed on Sunday.
Services available at 906 Route 6 will include picking up and holding materials; reserve and return books; consult books and e-readers; enroll in virtual programs; and receive technical assistance or rotating services by appointment only.
Patrons can contact library staff by phone at 845-628-2009, ext. 100 or by e-mail: [email protected] or via its chat service.
“We welcome this opportunity to make your library everything you need to pursue your dreams and achieve your goals. As soon as we can safely open our library building, we will let you know,” library officials said.
