Weather Closings and Delays

The Library may open one hour late when the Guilderland School District is closed because of inclement weather; all Storytimes that day will be cancelled. Snow is always an issue as we cannot legally open if our emergency exits are not cleared. Power outages or other emergencies may result in delay or early closing. When the Library’s regular hours are adjusted for any reason, our phone message will be updated and the announcement will be posted on the Library’s website, Twitter feed, and Facebook page.

The Library announces closings over the School Closings Network as well, which is carried on:
Radio: WFLY 92 FM, WGY 810 AM, WGNA 107.7 FM, WJYB 99.5 FM, WRVE 95.5 FM
Television: WNYT TV 13, WRGB TV 6, WTEN TV 10, WXXA TV 23, YNN TV 9
Newspaper Websites: The Daily Gazette, The Post Star, The Saratogian, The Times Union

Keep in mind that SCN outlets post closing information at varying times, and that announcements of school closings and delays always have broadcast priority. Be certain that your child can reach you if we close unexpectedly. To ensure your child’s safety, we notify the police of any children who have not been picked up within 15 minutes of closing.
