Weather conditions may require a delayed opening or an unscheduled closing of the library. Safety is our primary concern. If Clarkstown Central School District has a snow closing * or * delay the library has an automatic 1 hour delay and will open at 10:30am. Further delays or decisions to close early are made on a case by case basis. All delays and early closings are listed on the library’s website,, and our phone message system. Library programs may be cancelled depending on the circumstances and it is best to call the library to confirm if poor weather is predicted.
