RCLS Member Libraries COVID Reopenings

In response to the COVID 19 pandemic, all RCLS Member Libraries closed their doors in mid-March, 2020. Now, following Phase 1 and Phase 2 guidelines for the Mid-Hudson region, libraries are taking the steps needed to reopen, with limited services. RCLS is compiling a list of each library's reopening status. In general, libraries will first be accepting returns only. Then curbside pickup will be offered, and online holds can be placed on local-library holdings only.


The RCLS News is the primary publication edited for the RCLS community: member library trustees, directors, and staff. Link to the Recent Issue or Archive of past issues.
