The Town of Ballston Community Library is continuing the policy of masks for all while inside the Library. Our Safety Plan is being reviewed on a bi-weekly basis by the Library Board of Trustees.

Thank you for your support of the Library and for being respectful of our current safety procedures. The Library Board of Trustees are awaiting further guidance before making any policy changes. The Library's COVID-19 reopening policy can be found online at:

The Federal Communications Commission has launched a temporary program to help families and households struggling to afford Internet service during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Emergency Broadband Benefit provides a discount of up to $50/month toward broadband service for eligible households and up to $75/month for households on qualifying Tribal lands. Eligible households can also receive a one-time discount of up to $100 to purchase a laptop, desktop, or tablet computer from participating providers.
