During the months of March and April, the Library will operate under reduced hours (Monday through Friday from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.). During this time, only materials held in our reading room will be made available to researchers. Access to archival collections and other materials housed in our archives storage area will not be permitted. Additionally, the Library will not be able to accept remote research requests during this time. If you have any questions about library operations during this transition period, please call us at 518-374-0263. We apologize for the inconvenience, and look forward to welcoming our new Librarian/Archivist this spring.
