  3. Hello,
    I was curious, are summer hours the same as whats listed above?
    Also, does the library have wi-fi or computers to work on?
    I will be taking a vacation in Tupper lake this June and would like somewhere to go to do my summer course work.
    Thank you!,

    • Yes, our summer hours are the same. The library has free Wi-Fi and public computers to work on (limit of 45 minutes is enforced if others are waiting to use a computer). See you in June!

  4. I see on the site that you offer free passes to The Wild Center and discounts to Adirondack Museum – how does one qualify and obtain ?

    • The Wild Center offers discounted passes that are available to all of our Tupper Lake patrons who have a library card. Sorry, the Wild Center won’t allow us to reserve them.

  5. Do you have copies of Mostly Spruce and Hemlock for sale?

  6. Do you have copies of Rising from the Swamp for sale? And how would I buy it?

    • Yes. If you send us a check for $28 for the book, plus $5 for postage, we’ll send the book to you.

  7. Hello please explain to me the free pass to the Wild Center

    • Hi Dann, Sorry I didn’t reply sooner — I was out of town. A discounted pass to the Wild Center is available to our patrons who have a library card. The Wild Center does not allow us to reserve a pass, but you can call the library at 359-9421 to see if a pass is available. As you can imagine, they’ve been in very high demand!

  8. Hello!
    Is it possible to get photos from your digital collection on NYS Heritage scanned at a higher resolution? Thank you!
