Covid-19 Service Updates from BML

Updated: 1/15/21
Foyer Construction has been completed!  

Visitors can now enter the library through our main entrance.

Curbside Pickup
Our popular curbside pickup service has returned to our foyer. To order items, call the library at 784-5300 during our open hours (Monday through Friday, 10 AM - 5 PM, and until 8:00 PM on Wednesdays, and Saturdays Noon- 3:30 PM) or fill out an online request form.

Computer Access

As BML is currently in an orange zone, use of our internet computers has been discontinued.
Returning Items
We continue to quarantine all returned items for three business days before removing them from library cards.  Fines will not accrue while items are in quarantine, and items will be backdated to reflect the actual return date once they are scanned by staff.

We cannot accept book/item donations at this time.
Of Note:
Brighton Memorial Library is currently open Monday through Friday from 10 AM - 5 PM, with extended hours until 8 PM on Wednesdays. We are also open on Saturdays from Noon - 3:30 PM.

To enter, patrons are required to wear a mask while in the library, fill out a brief health screening form, and be temperature checked. These requirements are mandated by both NYS and the Town of Brighton. 

Our copier, scanner, fax machine, and coffee service are not available at this time. Patrons can print from their wireless devices from home and library computers. Printed items must be picked up at the Circulation Desk.

The Discovery Room and study rooms remain closed. There is still no seating in the library except for those using a library computer.

Because only a limited number of people are allowed in the library at one time, we are asking patrons to avoid lingering while visiting. 

The Friends have set up special displays of items for sale outside of the Bookstore and in the Reading Room. Everything is priced under $5.
