Now you can support the Alden Ewell Free Library with your bottle and can returns! Just tell Can-Can Redemption that you want the proceeds of your return to go to the library, and thank you for your continued support!
In-person browsing and walk-up borrowing with COVID-19 restrictions in place
Beginning February 1, the library will be open on a modified schedule, identical to the walk up-schedule (Mondays and Wednesdays from 9 AM until 5 PM, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12 PM until 7 PM, and Saturdays from 9 AM until 2 PM)
Face coverings are required for all patrons aged 2 and up, and patrons are asked to observe social distancing inside the library
Public computer access will also be modified to observe social distancing protocol (1 hour sessions per patron per day, some computers are unavailable to ensure social distancing)
Walk-up service will still be offered for those who prefer to utilize it
Fill in our 24-hour online form at https://forms.gle/KxNqkJU5J1GSVWxj8 or call 716-937-7082 during open hours (see below) with a request of up to 5 items
All items must be available at the Alden Ewell Free Public Library, search the online catalog (here) and limit your search to Alden Ewell Free Library (this option can be found in the left hand column of an active search page)
Requests from other libraries are still available at this time (must be arranged through the online catalog, NOT our library’s request form) but will require more than 24 hours to be available for pick up. When you receive notice that your hold is available for pick up, contact us to schedule a time.
A pick up time will be arranged once your items are ready for pick up
A face covering is required for pick up if you are not fully vaccinated; if there is someone inside the foyer area, step away from the door and wait outside at a socially acceptable distance of at least 6 feet until they leave the area.
Walk-up service is available starting February 1 on Mondays and Wednesdays from 9 AM until 5 PM, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12 PM until 7 PM, Saturdays 9 AM – 2 PM
