We are seeking your input!

The CVW Long Lake Public Library is conducting an anonymous survey to gather feedback from students, Library staff, Friends of the Library, teachers, stakeholders, and our community members. The information collected will provide a baseline roadmap to align the CVW Long Lake Public Library’s goals to set objectives and improve community services.

A strategic plan is a document that sets the goals of the Library to focus on during a multi-year timeframe, usually 3 to 5 years. It is intended to help the Library move towards meeting its overall mission and vision.


To ensure our community’s values and vision are reflected in future decision making, the CVW Long Lake Public Library is creating a Strategic Plan. The Library is seeking input on key areas, including the objective, potential actions and services that provide support to our community.

Please provide that input by responding to the 14 (fourteen) questions within this survey. Hard copies are available at the Library and the Post Office.

We thank you for your feedback!

Masks and Library Policy

This is a friendly reminder to wear your mask when entering the library building. Masks will continue to be required for everyone–staff, patrons, and visitors when entering the library building until further notice.

Safety of our staff and patrons continues to be our primary goal as we assess the ever evolving recommendations and guidance provided by the CDC, NY Department of Health, NY Department of Labor, our Hamilton County Public Health Department, and Southern Adirondack Library System (SALS) with consideration of the Library‘s current Pandemic Plan Policy (https://longlake.sals.edu/about/).

We thank all of you for your cooperation.

Free Live Stream Concert: Hot Club of Saratoga!

Saturday, November 21st at 7 pm

Calling out to all Adirondack residents and visitors: Join us here online for our first ever Live Stream Concert! Share with your friends–Socialize online during the concert!

From their living room to yours, the Hot Club of Saratoga, the Capital Region’s premier gypsy swing ensemble, plays a repertoire that reflects the spirit and style originated by Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli in The Quintet of the Hot Club of France. Most prominently developed in 1930’s and 40’s Paris, this genre has been kept alive through a long line of gypsy jazz artists since that time. Most of the tunes Hot Club of Saratoga plays were written or recorded by Django at some time in his musical life, hot swing music of the 1920’3, 30’s and 40’s.

We will add the Live Stream link here when we have it. Chat will be available during the concert.

This project is made possible with the funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by the Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts.
