Your Library Card
Residents of the Voorheesville Central School District and many non-residents are eligible for a borrower's card free of charge. When applying, please bring identification verifying your name and your permanent mailing address. Children must be in Kindergarten to apply and their applications up to the age of 14 must be signed by the child and a parent or guardian.
Using Your Library Card
When patrons apply for a card, they may borrow up to 4 items immediately. Once the card is activated, they may borrow as many items as they choose. The card is non-transferable. Please remember to bring it to the library.
You may access your account by logging into the library's online catalog. Go to www.voorheesvillelibrary.org and click on the Catalog button. You will need your library card number (all digits with no spaces) and your PIN, which is the last 4 digits of your home phone number to request materials.
Replacing Your Library Card
There is a $1.00 replacement fee for lost cards. You can call to report your card lost but you must come to the library with ID to get a new one.
If your email address is in our database, you can be notified of items on hold or overdue by requesting that service at the circulation desk.
Return of Materials
A book drop is located to the left of the main entrance. This may be used anytime. Most items, with the exception of interlibrary loan materials, museum passes and Nook eReaders, may be returned to another local public library. Nook eReaders and museum passes must be returned at the circulation desk.
Home Book Delivery
If you are restricted to your home or if you are unable to use the library, please call 765-2791 and ask for the Reference Desk. A staff member will return your call so you can arrange to have library materials such as books, videos, audiobooks, music and more delivered and/or picked up at your door. It is free and custom tailored to your preferences.
The Reference Desk is staffed by a librarian during all library hours to assist you with finding information or materials. In addition to helping people in the library, we are happy to respond to requests by telephone, E-mail or Fax. Our email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Books, CD's, audiobooks, Nooks and DVDs can be placed on reserve if they are signed out when you request them. A staff member will phone or email you to let you know when the materials are available and the library will hold them for one week.
Materials that are not in our collection can often be borrowed from other libraries. We can obtain materials from local libraries or conduct a national search if necessary. Ask at the Reference Desk for details.
Storyhours are open to children of all ages and are scheduled on weekdays throughout the year. Please consult the library calendar or ask us for dates and times.

Fun and exciting Summer Reading Club programs motivate young readers to enjoy the library all summer long. Our selection of musicians, crafts and performers makes the library a cool place to be on hot summer afternoons. Other summer events include movies and concerts.
The Community Room is available to non-profit organizations or individuals for meetings and programs during regular library hours. Please speak to the Reference Librarian to reserve the room.
