You can schedule a visit to browse or use the computer any day we’re open. And of course, curbside is always an option too. Please note we only have one computer open to the public at this time. We will do our best to accomodate walk-ins but appointments are preferred as there is a limit to the number of folks we can have in the building.

  • Monday 2 pm to 5 pm
  • Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday 10 am to Noon; 2 pm to 6:30 pm.
  • Friday and Saturday 10 am to Noon

A family is one appointment and two families will not be scheduled at the same time.  Your safety and the safety of our staff is our highest priority.  Visitors will be required to verbally acknowledge our screening document. Appointments are necessary for both curbside pickup and in-person visits. Call us at 564-3594 or email us at to set up a time. Thank you for visiting the library! 


I returned my books/DVDs. Why are they still showing up on my account?

We must quarantine all items for up to 96 hours before handling and processing them. Therefore, while you may have returned your books/DVDs, our staff is not able to check them in for a week. Don’t worry, there are no fines and fees charged if this is the case.

Is the library building open?

Yes! We have expanded our hours and are scheduling 15 or 30-minute appointments during our open hours for you to come in and use a computer or browse items.  Call or email us for details or to schedule your appointment. You must follow a screening process, wear a mask, and if browsing wear gloves. (We provide the gloves.)

Are library materials safe?

NPL is following safety guidelines set forth by the American Library Association and the REALM Project. Items are quarantined for at least 96 hours and our staff wears gloves and masks when handling library materials.

Can I return items when I pickup my order?

Sure. In fact, we’d love for you to return items in a timely fashion so others can enjoy them. (Especially since they must be quarantined for 96 hours before they are available again.) However, items can only be returned at the book drop in the door. Please do not hand items to staff.

Can I order books from other libraries?

Yes! The Finger Lakes Library System is providing inter-library loan deliveries among its member-libraries. Many thanks to all the folks who made this possible, especially Tom our delivery driver!
