The Chatham Public Library is open for in-person browsing and public computer use during our regular library hours.

We are continuing to monitor the CDC’s COVID-19 recommendations and adjusting our services accordingly. If needed, we will put occupancy limits in place for the children’s room, community room, and Canaan Branch Library; and large group programs will be moved outdoors or online.

Taking Care of One Another

As of March 2, 2022, face masks are no longer required in library buildings, in keeping with Chatham Central School District policy.

Hand sanitizing stations are located throughout the library.

On the day of your visit, if you are feeling sick, have received a positive COVID-19 test, or have been in close proximity with anyone who’s had a positive COVID-19 diagnosis in the last 10 days, PLEASE STAY HOME and FEEL BETTER.

Returning Your Library Loans
Items may be returned inside as well as to the outdoor book and media drop. If you’ve borrowed a museum pass, ukulele, or other fragile item, please return in person to the circulation desk staff.
