Seeking Library Volunteers

The library is seeking volunteers for programming and working the circulation desk. If you are interested in helping out at the library, please fill out the application in the link below and return it to Mindy’s E-mail,, or bring it into the library.
Help is mainly needed on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays 11am – 5pm, and Tuesdays from 11am – 4:30pm. You do not need to work those full hours, the more volunteers we can get, the merrier! We are flexible.

Library Ceiling Refurbishment Project

We will be refurbishing the ceilings in the library starting on December 21, 2020.  Due to the process needed to do this, we will have to close the library to the public, however we will be open and available for curb side pickup only.  Please call the library or email us to set up an  appointment for any items you would like to borrow. 

Thank you for your patience while we complete this process.  The reopening date will be determined as the work progresses.

Code of Conduct Policy

In lieu of the present status of society due to Covid-19, we have adjusted the Code of Conduct Policy for the library.  Please see the policies on our Board of Trustees page for any updates.  

You can also access the updated Code of Conduct Policy here.

The Richfield Springs Public Library would like to invite students from 6th to 12th grade to join us in the creation of a Teen Advisory Board, where you will help us make decisions on programs, and books which the library will make available for you and your friends.  If you are interested, please contact us at (315)858-0230, or email me at
