We are excited to share our latest addition - iPads in the Children’s Room! They're loaded with a variety of educational and entertainment apps geared for children and selected by our librarians. They are intended for use by children and families together while they visit the library.

Databases aren't just for adults!
One of the best is Grolier Online by Scholastic. Click here or go to the "​Research Tools" link under Children in the navigation bar on the left side of this page. Get access to the Encyclopedia Americana, New Book of Knowledge, Grolier Multimedia Encyclopedia, Roget's II: The New Thesaurus & the American Heritage Dictionary. You will need your library card.

We are getting a brand new Circulation Desk!

Why you may ask? To better serve our Clarkstown community! Our current Circulation desk is over 20 years old.  At the time that it was mapped out and constructed it was state of the art.  However technology, laws and styles have changed. Our current desk is not wheelchair accessible, it was built prior to the internet and technology demands have really changed in the last 20 years. We also have more of a variety of items that we circulate, requiring more space for the items as well as for the patrons to sign loaning agreements.  (The skinny raised level is always a problem and signs and displays are constantly falling.) We look forward to sharing our new "look" with you in May.
