The Pleasant Valley Free Library suffered from a structural fire on Tuesday, November 6th. No one was harmed in the fire. The board is awaiting the final reports from the fire inspector, insurance company and cleaning service. The building is closed indefinitely.
While the library director and board are working to open temporary space the LaGrange Library has generously stepped up to be the hold pick-up location for Pleasant Valley residents and residents have been notified that their card works at any MHLS member library. We thank all member libraries for their gracious and heartwarming outreach to this library and their patrons, it has been wonderful to see the outpouring of support for this community in our MHLS Community.
At this time, the library is unable to accept any physical donations (books, shelving, etc). When they have found a temporary place to reopen library services, they will update everyone as to their plans. Right now, what they are most in need of are monetary donations to begin rebuilding. You can donate via their website (http://pleasantvalleylibrary.org/) or checks can be mailed to: PO Box 633 Pleasant Valley NY 12569. Every little bit will help!
