Effective March 13, 2020 the Library will be closed until further notice. We are taking this action in order to contain any future spread of Covid-19 (Coronavirus). The current situation is moving rapidly and the Town of Somers will keep all citizens updated as more information becomes available.
All programs have been cancelled, but keep an eye on our Facebook page for some virtual programming! All fines will be waived during this closure and we ask that, if possible, you hold all items you currently have checked out until we reopen. Please email the Library Director, Jessica Miller, at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. Stay healthy everyone!
