Seymour Construction

Construction has started! A big thank you to the Town of Clarkson Highway Department for getting us going before summer reading. The plumbing in the Seymour Library needs new lines to connect our outflow more efficiently. This gets us started. The library will NOT close during this time. The Town of Clarkson has worked around the library and its patrons to make sure everyone can still access the library. Please be mindful of traffic patterns and pedestrians during when entering/leaving the parking lot. We’re hoping this stage gets finished up sometime before May 18th. Our community leaders have prioritized the functionality of the building to keep Seymour great. Let us know if you have any questions!

Automatic Renewal Starts May 1st!

Throughout the Monroe County Library System, including at the Seymour Library, automatic renewals will begin on May 1, 2024. Automatic renewal means that if you have a book or item that the system can renew, you will receive an e-mail 4 days before the due date notifying you of the renewal.

E-mails on file will automatically get opted in. To opt-out, please visit your local library. Patrons will also get a courtesy e-mail notifying them which items the system could not renew, along with their due date.

Items that Seymour CANNOT renew:

  • NEW Items or Non-renewable items
  • Items on hold for another patron
  • Items that have reached their renewal limits
  • Items on accounts in delinquency

We look forward to making the borrowing process easier for our patrons!
