New Security Gates

New security gates at Haverstraw Library

For over 10 years, our security gates have been a regular sight at the main Library in Garnerville - until recently that is! We now have new glass security gates that seamlessly blend in with the surroundings as seen above. We expect this new gate to last a long time providing security for all while being more pleasing to the eye.

News & Events

E-books: More Availability than Ever!

In response to your frustration with having to borrow and download popular titles, all of the libraries in the Ramapo Catskill Library System (RCLS) are working together to make more content available sooner. You can read e-books on an e-reader, tablet, smartphone or other device, and on your desktop computer as well. The same goes for e-audio, for the most part. Stop by the Reference Desk, and we will be glad to show you how it works, and help you get started.

Blood Drive on September 9

Honor our first responders - donate blood and save a life! One lucky donor will win a sports jersey of the player/team of their choosing. Drop by the Community Room at the main library in Garnerville on Wednesday, September 9, 1 pm - 7 pm. Sponsored by the NY Blood Center and Senior Girl Scout Troop 40683.

Feeling a Little Run Down?

Your devices, that is. Charge 'em up at the Library! We have USB charging stations in the Reference, Children's, Teen and mid-level computer areas. Forgotten your charger or power cord? Come to the Circulation Desk and check one out. Cords can be borrowed for 3 days. We'll get you back to full strength in no time!

Got Yearbooks?

We are looking to expand our yearbook collection. The Library purchases a copy of the current year's high school yearbook, but all others are donations from the community. If you have a good clean copy of any of the North Rockland School District yearbooks listed below, we'd be more than happy to take it off your hands! To donate or for more information, please call 786-3800 ext. 22. Thank you!
