The RUDOLF STEINER LIBRARY is now open for Curbside and Mailing services!
The Rudolf Steiner Library reopened on June 17th after a thorough cleaning/sanitization, and with a six-page Safety Plan in place, as required by the NYS Department of Health. We are open through the month of July for only curbside and mailing services, pending further notice from NY State, and in keeping with the Capital District Library Council guidelines.
Our Book Drop Boxes have been reopened at the RSLibrary and the HVFStore locations (please enclose materials in plastic to avoid errant trash in boxes). At this time, due to the pandemic and subsequent shutdown, there are currently over 800 overdue books out there. Please return any past due materials at your earliest convenience. There are no overdue fines at the RSLibrary. However, donations are gratefully accepted!
Please feel free to place your book orders through Reserve, Bibliography, Email or Phone.
For local patrons using Curbside service (available during our regular hours of Wednesday through Saturday, 10AM to 3PM), the RSCFoundation requests that the following protocol is followed:
- Call in advance (518) 944-7007 to request materials
- Loan materials will be packaged and placed on a cart in the vestibule outside the library at a pick-up time agreed upon with the RSL staff
- Use face coverings and hand sanitizer/hand-washing prior to entering the building
- Maintain 6-foot physical distancing as necessary
- Entry to the library is prohibited
With these simple protocols, we hope to safely make the rich RSL collection available to you all.
We appreciate your participation and cooperation during our gradual reopening.
We wish that you all stay well !
