Fines and loan periods vary among the public libraries of Westchester County.  Please note that some libraries may also charge you to place or pick up a “hold.”

Our Book Drop may be used for returning most items when the library is closed; it is at the front of the building to the right of stairs.  Please use rubber bands to securely bind audiovisual items.

*Museum passes must be returned to the adult reference desk.

Inter-library loan books (items from libraries other than Westchester’s public libraries) must be returned to the circulation desk; we cannot renew them, as per Westchester Library System’s policy.
