Levy Library Reopening: July 2021

As more and more of our community members become vaccinated, the Levy Library is pleased to gradually reopen our space to patrons. Below you will find where we stand with our reopening progress. Have any questions? Ask A Librarian!


Library Entrance Turnstiles

Anyone entering the Levy Library space must present a valid Mount Sinai Health System or Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai ID badge in order to swipe through our new turnstile system.

Computer Workstations

Computer workstations in the Levy Library are now reopen with reduced availability and social distancing policies in place. Cleaning stations are available for patrons to sanitize their workstations before and after each use.

Library Space Expansion

The silent study section of the Levy Library is now open with a reduced number of seats available to ensure social distancing.

Masking/Social Distancing

Students, faculty, and staff who have a valid Mount Sinai-issued ID badge with a vaccine sticker are not required to wear a mask inside the Levy Library. Those who do not have a vaccine sticker are still required to wear a mask and maintain a distance of six feet from other patrons in all library spaces and facilities. 


Remote Services

While the library space has reopened, many services are still remote at the date of this posting. Services such as Ask A Librarian, Interlibrary Loan, Research Consultations, and Writing Support Service are all being conducted virtually. For a full list, please visit our Remote Services guide here
