A Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Survey for Philipstown
A coalition of Philipstown community groups and institutions including the Desmond-Fish Public Library, the Julia L. Butterfield Memorial Library, the Haldane PTA Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Committee, and the Garrison Union Free School District Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee have joined together to create a survey on issues of racial equity and social justice. The survey results will help guide programming at each of our institutions.
People who live and work in Philipstown, as well as those who visit our community, are welcome to take the survey. We would also like to hear from young people in middle school and older. The survey is anonymous and takes less than 10 minutes to complete.
The survey is available to be taken online here.
A Spanish-language version of the survey is available here.
Printed copies of the survey are available at the Butterfield and Desmond-Fish libraries.
Curbside/Vestibule PICKUP Instructions
How can I schedule a pickup of items I have put on hold?
You can choose curbside pickup where we will deliver right to your car, or we can leave it for you in the Patron Pickup Vestibule. Call us at 845-265-3040, or email [email protected] and let us know which option you prefer!
How do I return items I already have checked out?
Come inside to the Front Desk, or place them in one of the two return boxes we have - one is in the parking lot, the other is a slot in the front door. (PLEASE NOTE: Our parking lot drop box is closed until further notice due to vandalism.)
