Yonkers Public Library (YPL) buildings have reopened. Learn more about our reopening plan.

A Plan For Reopening: Frequently Asked Questions

When will the Yonkers Public Library reopen?

We’re coordinating with other local libraries to make the decision on when to reopen based on the best public health information available and guidance from the City of Yonkers, Westchester County and New York State’s New York Forward reopening plan.

What services will be available when the library reopens?

Our main priorities at this time will be to resume circulating library materials (books, movies, music, etc). We also plan to provide access to the Internet via our public computers.

Will everything return to normal when the library opens?

The simple answer is no. There will be a lot of changes to the library’s plan of service, at least for the time being. While this is not an exhaustive list, be aware that the following changes are likely for the near term:

  • Patrons and staff will be required to wear face masks while in our buildings, pursuant to Executive Order 202.17.
  • Patrons will be required to wear disposable gloves while using the library’s computers. The library will have gloves available for patrons who don’t have their own.
  • Each building will have an occupancy limit based on the need for social distancing.
  • Patrons will not be permitted to linger in the library buildings for extended periods. If you are not taking advantage of our on-site services and resources, you will be asked to leave the building to make it possible for other patrons to enter.
  • To enable social distancing, fewer computers will be available for public use. For this reason, daily time limits will be reduced to give everyone who needs to use a computer the opportunity to do so.
  • All public programs and meetings will remain suspended until further notice, but we will continue to offer a full roster of virtual programs..
  • Study rooms will not be available.
  • Interlibrary and Intralibrary loans are suspended. For the time being, you won’t be able to put holds on books that are not currently owned by your library branch.
  • Social distancing will be required in all areas of the library, including at public service desks, in reading rooms and computer labs and in elevators. Some areas will have taped indicators on the floors or signs to inform you of the rules.
Will I have to pay fines on overdue materials?

In order to minimize the handling of money, we will be waiving overdue fines for the time being. If you have lost materials belonging to the Yonkers Public Library or another library in Westchester County, please call us at 914-457-1821 to discuss the issue.

Can my organization hold meetings in the library?

For the time being, YPL is unable to host meetings or programs planned by outside organizations. Your organization may be eligible to use YPL’s Zoom account to host a meeting. Contact us at 914-375-7947 for more information.

Will study rooms be available?

All of our study rooms will remain closed for the time being out of concern for the safety of our patrons.

Will the library be accepting book donations?

We won’t be accepting donated books or other materials until further notice. All library book sales have been suspended until further notice.

What steps is the library taking to keep everyone safe?
  • All high-touch surfaces in the library will be cleaned and sanitized thoroughly before we open each day and over the course of the day. We’ll also have sanitizing wipes available for you to use on keyboards and other frequently touched surfaces.
  • We’ve removed furniture and will be leaving many of our computers off in order to support recommended levels of social distancing.
  • We’ve installed plexiglass barriers at all public service desks.
  • We’ve installed additional scanners at our circulation desks so that you can scan your own library card and items you’re checking out. A staff member will be on hand (on the other side of the plexiglass) to assist you.
  • We’re quarantining returned books and other library materials before reshelving them to ensure that there’s no risk of infection. For this reason, materials you’ve returned will still display as being checked out. Everything will be checked back in after 3 days of quarantine. Please call us at 914-457-1821 if you have any questions or concerns about returned materials.
When will everything go back to normal?

Like you, we wish we knew the answer to this question! It’s hard to say if everything will ever go back to exactly the way it was in the past. We’ll continue to monitor the situation and will aim to relax restrictions and expand our services as soon as it is safe and responsible to do so.

What can I do to help?

By wearing a mask when you visit the library, wearing disposable gloves while using our computers, limiting your time in the library and following social distancing guidelines, you can help us reduce any risk to yourself and to other patrons and library staff. If you need help with your account, it’s better to call ahead rather than visit in person. You can also minimize your trips to the library by taking advantage of all of our virtual resources and services, including ebooks, audiobooks and streaming movies and music and online learning opportunities
