Library Card

The CVW Long Lake Public Library offers free library cards to taxpayers/residents of the Long Lake School District and near surrounding areas. Residents of areas served by a chartered library in the Mohawk Valley Library System (MVLS) and Southern Adirondack Library System (SALS) are also able to borrow materials and use services at the library. Materials with high local demand may be restricted from delivery to those library systems’ service areas across NY, though pick-up of materials at The CVW Long Lake Public Library is available to all registered borrowers of MVLS and SALS. 

A library card is required for patrons to check out materials.  Replacement cards are available for no fee.
