Library Services

More than books on a shelf!


Our little library is wired for WiFi and it’s FREE for the general public to use at any time, even when we’re closed because our WiFi coverage extends onto the lawn and into the parking lot! Our WiFi is called Library Wireless and does not require a password to sign in.


At present there are 3 computer stations available for public use. Computers are available on a first come first served basis. Users are subject to our Internet Access Policy:


Our printer/copier is available for public use at a cost of .25 cents per page. Scanning and faxing is free!


We carry subscriptions to various publications, both daily and monthly. Current and back issues of magazines are available for loan. Issues are kept for one year before being discarded, excepting Adirondack Life which we archive. Daily publications are kept for 30 days before being discarded and are available for in library use only. Publications include the Post-Star, Lake George Mirror and The Sun.


Legos.  So many Legos.  In addition we also have crafting materials, Magna-Tiles, coloring pages, puzzles and games to pass the time on a rainy day!


Museum passes are family admission passes for local institutions.  They have a 7 day loan and are also holdable for pickup. Each pass comes with different benefits!

Our finished basement is now available to the public. In addition to housing our book sale, the space is rated for an occupancy of 57 people so if you or a group you are affiliated with is looking for a place to hold a meeting, workshop, seminar, speaker, presentation etc. feel free to contact us. Note: Users must be able to access the space by stairs. There is no elevator in our historic building.


This is our outside drop box. We love this little guy as he not only keeps returned materials warm and dry but also because accepts materials from ANY OTHER SALS MEMBER LIBRARY.

That’s right, drop anything from any other SALS library and we’ll see that it makes it home safe and sound.


There is a small parking area behind the library available for patron use. Additionally, patrons may park in the spots on Canada Street in front of the library for fifteen minutes.
