Wood Library will reopen in Phase 4

Wood Library is an association library chartered by the NYS Department of Education.  As such, we are currently slated for reopening in Phase 4.
 
Library staff and the Board of Trustees are working hard to ensure that we have needed supplies, policies, and guidelines in place to reopen safely. Target dates are dependent on the curve and case numbers in phases 1-3. Our reopening is projected to be mid to late June. Services may be limited with social distancing in place.
