See below for answers to your most pressing questions.

Where should I enter and exit the building to use these services?

Part of the reopening plan requires separate entrances and exits for staff and patrons. You will be asked to enter the building on the south side, through the door just beyond the Ezra Cornell mural. Please note that masks and six feet of social distancing are required to enter the building and must remain in place for your entire visit. You will be able to exit the building through the lobby facing Green Street.

How much time will I have on the internet?

You will be allowed one 30-minute session per day.

Will I need my library card to use this service?

Yes, please bring your library card to log in to the computers.  You will need your password, which is usually the last 4 numbers of your phone number.

Due to the six feet of social distancing required, the library now has seven internet stations. Two printer/copy machine stations and one fax machine will be available. There is also one scanner station and two Census designated computer stations.
