Hurley Library Closing

In light of recent events, the Hurley Library has made the difficult decision to close through March 31st.  We want to put the health of our patrons first and foremost so we will be following the precedent set by the Ulster County Legislature and the Kingston City School District.  Our last day of service to the Hurley Community will be Monday, March 16 until March 31st.  We know this is an inconvenience and hope the community will understand that this is our way of helping limit exposure to the COVID-19 virus during this time.  All due dates and fines will be forgiven during this time.  We appreciate your cooperation and look forward to serving you in the near future.
