Library Grab and Go and More in NYC

Beginning Monday in select grab-and-go locations, patrons will also be able to browse shelves for a set period of time and make appointments to use desktop computers.

Additionally, in The New York Public Library system, patrons can request an appointment to access collections at research centers, including the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building on 42nd Street and Fifth Avenue.

All patrons in all systems must follow safety protocols, including wearing masks, social distancing, and respecting time limits to ensure that as many patrons as possible can utilize services.

While the library systems are closely monitoring circumstances in the city, libraries expect to add computer use and browsing to all of their grab-and-go locations in the coming weeks and then incrementally open locations until they are all open by mid-July.

They are also planning to provide a suite of outdoor programs and continued virtual programs, classes, vaccination resources and more.
