If you are heading to the Tompkins Square Library branch

Several readers have noted that the Tompkins Square Library branch on 10th Street between Avenue A and Avenue B has been closed since Friday...
The NYPL previously noted that staffing shortages have impacted some locations. (They also paused in-person programming until Jan. 31.) The Tompkins branch will be open today (Monday, Jan. 24) with the reduced hours of 1-5 p.m. 

You may want to check online before visiting this or any NYPL outpost. The Ottendorfer branch on Second Avenue between St. Mark's Place and Ninth Street is open during its usual hours. 

Thanks to Stacie Joy for the photos!

They just lost their program coordinator, hopefully that wasn’t the first step to halting. Love this branch!

It's probably a good idea to actually call any NYPL branch before heading over to it, due to the staff shortages. Although each branch notes online if they're open or not at that time, I've experienced being disappointed by arriving at the "open" branch and seeing a note on the door stating it wouldn't be open until a few hours later that day.
