library is open for walk up pickup only

BNML is offering Walk Up Pickup of select library materials to include our hardcover and paperback books, magazines, audiobooks and DVDs.  Library hours are Mondays 1 to 4pm, Thursdays 12 to 5pm, Fridays 12 to 5pm, and Saturdays 10 am to 5pm.  

Requests from BNML can be made by calling 518-963-8079 during library hours, or by e-mailing any time.  Our Clinton Essex Franklin Library System (CEFLS) interlibrary loan service is now available.  Your BNML membership card can be used at all CEFLS member libraries.  On-line Requesting is also now available for our library and all CEFLS member libraries.  Requests will be filled when the library is staffed on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.  As always, requests will be on a first come, first serve basis, and your name will be placed in a queue for high demand items.

To search for books, you can visit the online catalog on our website at  From the top of our home page, select “Search the Catalog“, and then you can select “Search Essex Library Collection” or “Search All CEF Library Collections” to find library materials that interest you. There are also options to narrow your search.

When your request is filled, you will be called or emailed (whichever you prefer), and the library materials will be placed at the library entrance door when you confirm your pickup time with the Library staff.  Pickups can only be completed during library hours.  Please respect physical distancing and wear a face mask when picking up library materials.  Your safety is our number one priority.

Please be respectful of the due dates as we will have to quarantine library materials in order to lend to the next Patron.  Library materials may be returned to our Book Return Bin located outside the library at any time.
