Welcome to The Library

Covid-19 Update:

Due to the recent upsurge in COVID-19 cases in the region the Saranac Lake Free Library will be temporarily suspending "In Person Browsing" as of Tuesday November 17, 2020.

SLFL will continue to offer "Walk Up Service" from 11am - 5:30 pm Tuesday-Friday and from 11am-1pm on Saturdays

We understand that this is what some people might refer to as, "A Big Bummer" but we at SLFL believe this is the best way to help mitigate potential harm to our patrons and staff.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation!
