Even now, libraries are here to help you learn, grow, and entertain the kids! Many public libraries in Nassau are offering residents without an existing library card a Digital Library Card, with access to things like ebooks, audiobooks, live tutoring, digital magazines, language courses, streaming video, test prep, and more. These cards will last until June 30th.
Apply for digital access today at nassaulibrary.org/digital-card-application.
We expect there may be high demand for these cards, so please be patient as we do the best we can to get your digital card to you quickly. Staff will create your online library card as soon as possible and transmit this information to you by email.
Postponing Library Programming and Meetings
Dear Library Patrons,
We have been carefully monitoring developments related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Our first priority is always the safety of our patrons and staff therefore we have decided to postpone all programs and meetings scheduled at the Library from Friday, March 13th, through Tuesday, March 31st. We will work to reschedule postponed events when possible and refund program registrants if necessary.
We take these steps out of an abundance of caution and feel it is the best way to serve the community by heeding the guidance of health officials.
We continue to advise all our patrons, as well as staff, to follow CDC guidelines by:
- Staying home if you are not feeling well
- Regularly washing your hands
- Avoiding crowded areas, especially if you are an at-risk individual
Currently, the Library remains open for normal hours. Enhanced cleaning and sanitizing procedures are taking place. As a precaution we have also temporarily removed most toys and puzzles from our Children’s Room.
As always, the Library has many digital services available to you for free, such as, e-books, e-audiobooks, movies, digital newspapers and magazines.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. We look forward to returning to normal operating procedures. Until then, please follow social distancing guidelines and stay safe.
Elaine Cummings-Young, Library Director
