Your Local Library Delays Fines & Has Free WiFi Access For You
So are you worried that you are going to get serious fines because you did not return your library books? If you borrowed them from the Poughkeepsie Public Library System/ Mid-Hudson Libraries, do not worry.
As long as you return the books to the library (yes, you can use the shoots at the library branches) before the expected reopening date of April 17, 2020, you will not be charged any overdue fines.
The library has also renewed any library cards that were set to expire before the end of April. The new expiration date will be June 1, 2020. Basically, to renew your card, under normal circumstances, you just show your ID and your card in person at anyone of the branches and that will instantly renew your card. Keep in mind that your library card also entitles you to check out e-books through their website and the Overdrive and Libby apps.
Lastly, if you were someone who would visit the library because of the free wifi. You can still visit the library and use the wifi during the Covid-19 closures. According to their website, you should be able to access the wifi from your car during this closure time. The free wifi use is limited to what ever the 'normal' operating hours of your library branch were before the closure.
