COVID-19 Info

While there is a lot of good information available about COVID-19/”Coronavirus,” there are also many websites and social media platforms that are passing on partial, sensationalized and even false information.
Please click “read more” below for a list of direct resources about the virus, as well as Irvington-specific pages for alerts.

Other Library Updates

In addition to the library closure:

– the Tiffany Reading Room (at the Town Hall) will be closed until further notice, as its historic finishes cannot be cleaned with current anti-COVID-19 protocols.

– We are canceling some programs. Please check the calendar for more information.


Welcome to the *new* Irvington Public Library website! Our job is to be a resource to you, and we can do that even when closed. Please explore the age categories to the left, and check back often– we are continually updating every page!

Also, feel free to use this form to get answers to any questions not answered by our website.
