In keeping with the Governor’s shelter in place order, the library will remain closed through April 11th. We hope to reopen on April 13th, but the situation remains fluid. Thank you for your ongoing understanding. Please stay home if you can and stay safe, friends.
CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: The Lonsdale Public Library will remain open for our regular business hours for the time being. However, all library events including story time are cancelled until March 28 and the story room and meeting room will be closed to outside events. As you know, the situation is constantly changing, so check back regularly for updates.
We love that our story room gets used by kids and families. We love that all the toys and games we stock are fun for you to play with. Thank you to the many, many people that use the room conscientiously.
But someone left this mess for us to clean up. That’s not nice. So here’s a reminder to please think of others and try to leave the room as you found it.
Also, please be sure that you’re not accidentally taking home anything that belongs to the library. We’ve recently lost a Kermit the Frog and some dinosaur figurines, for example. If you find them among your toys, please send them home. We promise to ask no questions.

Big thanks to the Lonsdale Snowizards Snowmobile Club for their generous donation to our children’s programming. We will soon have a new kids’ size craft table and chairs to enhance our storytimes, hands-on science and other fun activities for young people. Also, keep your eyes peeled for upcoming movie programs, since the Snowizards sponsored a public performance license, alllowing us to legally show all sorts of movies for kids and adults, alike!
