New Rochelle Public Library has been reading these times right
Book a visit in person now
Our gem of a Library right here in Downtown New Rochelle has been reinventing everything for months. The library staffers (and now local celebrities) have been hosts of new and well received internet shows and presentations. They have also been creating terrific original kits that viewers pick up at the Library and then use with the shows.
Library staff mastered the Curbside Pickup phase, and now has moved into the new Browsability Sessions which allow into the Library up to 57 patrons at a time to look for books.
Yes, you read that.
People can go back to the Library—in person!
There is hand sanitizer and disposable gloves.
The Friends of the Library Bookstore is also open now. You can browse and buy on Tuesdays and Thursdays 10am-12pm and 2pm-4pm.
Feeling like healing?
Downtown Medical Pros will help you–with telemed and in person
Whatever ails you will be healed right here in Downtown New Rochelle. We’re filled with medical pros—Allergy and ENT Specialists, Chiropractors, Dentists, General Practitioners, Mental Health Counselors, Physical Therapists, Podiatrists, Retina Specialists, and Women’s Health Counselors—all of whom have been helping clients heal and feel better.
Our Downtown Acupuncture New Rochelle at 421 Huguenot St. re-opened when the NY Forward Phases allowed and lately has been doing the centuries-old pain relief technique mostly on people who come in with pain, anxiety and issues around new physical activity—or new lack of it.
Mental Health Counselors such as Alssaro Counseling Services at 481 Main St. and St. Yves Medical and Behavioral Health at 481 Main Street have been equally splitting sessions with clients between teleservices and in-person. They’ve seen a rise in depression. But the good news is that they are seeing a lessening in the intensity of anxiety issues. Doctors at the Westmed Medical Group, at 171 Huguenot St., have more people coming into the office for appointments—mostly preventative care—and more choosing in-person over telemedicine right now. Retina Associates of New York at 14 Lawton Street, are seeing very clearly that telemedicine isn’t the way to go for their practice. And that’s good because they are just about back to normal with their client visits.
