Retirement News

Diane DeChillo will retire at the end of March after a 16-year career as Library Program Manager and Grant Writer for SRL. “I will miss the Library community, my colleagues and the many friends I have met during my time here,” she said.


Our eMagazine collection is moving from RBdigital to the Libby app, the same easy to use app where you access your favorite eBooks and Audiobooks! No wait lists or holds and eMagazines do not count towards checkout limits. And, there are thousands of magazines to choose from.


Curbside service continues at the library. As more information has become available about virus transmission on surfaces, the library has reduced its quarantine time from 3 days to 24 hours. Patrons who are more comfortable with a longer quarantine time might want to hold materials for additional time in their cars or homes.

The Town of Rochester Memberships

The Town of Rochester has contracted with the Stone Ridge Library to provide 238 paid family memberships to its Rochester residents this year. Additionally, the Library is providing free memberships to all Rondout Valley Students.

Rochester patrons can renew their memberships by phone or email* this year due to Covid 19, beginning January 2, 2021.
