Library Reopening

The Administration and Board of Trustees of the West Babylon Public Library considers the safety of staff and patrons to be its most important priority when making decisions regarding reopening of the Library building in relation to the ongoing coronavirus. Accordingly, the library will reopen in phases, following best practices, recommendations and guidelines established by county, state and federal agencies and officials. The reopening plan will be re-evaluated as needed in order to follow new and changing directives from government and health officials.

Book Drop Open as of Tuesday, June 2nd

Books, audiobooks, CD’s and DVD’s may be returned to the library beginning on Tuesday, 6/2. All returned items will be quarantined for 72 hours, so you may still see them on your patron account after they have been returned. They will be checked in once the quarantine period ends and late fees will not accrue.
