We hope that you are safe and well at home and wanted to reach out to make sure that everyone knows how to access our electronic resources while the library is closed.
We also want to request that you NOT return borrowed materials at this time, as staff has been directed to stay at home per local health officials’ instructions. While we have not had any incidents in the library, we want to participate wholeheartedly in this effort.
Electronic services are posted on the Library’s website. At each logo, there is an explanation of what it provides. Whether you are using a phone (See MENU) or a computer (Find the logos on the left-hand side of the screen), these sites provide a variety of resources.

What you will need:
Your library card barcode and PIN number.
Your library barcode is found on the back of your library card.
If you don’t have or forgot your PIN, click the forgot pin section and it will walk you through.
The Library Facebook and Instagram pages provide additional opportunities. On our SRL Facebook page, we not only post in-house notices and photos but also share resources that other organizations are offering. Some of these include NYPL, The Metropolitan Opera House, NASA and others who are generously offering free downloads and performances. What a way for the community to come together!
And if you follow Stone Ridge Library on Instagram, you will find photos and videos. This platform also allows SRL to interact with other libraries so that we can learn from each other the latest and greatest ways to reach out digitally. Stay tuned for some creative ideas!
We love the interactive features on Facebook and Instagram. Click like or love, share a finding. We will post instructions and guidelines for our digital apps on these platforms which allow us to update regularly.
Thank you for your cooperation. Please stay well.
