Library Closed 

Under the guidance of Governor Cuomo, effective Monday, March 16th The Field Library will be closed to help prevent the spread of the novel COVID-19 virus. We will remain closed until such time that we have received notification that the library may reopen. During this public health crisis the library will not charge overdue fines. We ask that you keep any items that have been checked out until the library is re-open.

During this closure the library will be sanitized which includes wiping down all surfaces, toys, keyboards, and computer mice with sanitizing wipes. The City of Peekskill is sanitizing doorknobs, handrails, and commonly touched areas throughout the Neighborhood Center.

We encourage everyone to use our online resourcs during this time of crisis. You can find a list of resources here: https://www.peekskill.org/databases#.Xm9_u6hKhPY.
