Coronavirus (COVID-19) update and information

The Sloatsburg Library is open for patrons to browse for books, CDs and DVDs (for up to 30 minutes per visit). 

During this public health period, we are limiting the number of patrons inside at any given time, per NY State guidelines. Patrons (over the age of two) must have a working mask on their face to be in our building. 

We are excited to announce that the Children’s Room is now open for browsing by up to two family members (due to safety and social distancing rules). Children’s Room materials will also be made available upon request.


We continue to offer curbside pick-up service for patrons who are more comfortable with this popular grab ’n’ go arrangement. Just call the library to reserve any materials and we will prepare them for easy pickup in the entryway of the Library.

Library computers will be available during open hours by appointment only and for a maximum of 30 minutes per day. Computer time will only be available with a reservation.

Call 845-753-2001 for more information. You can also reach out to us via email at sloatsburgpubliclibrary@gmail.com.

We have new cards! 

Your library card is a key to so many community resources, from adult and children's programs to digital streaming, educational and job tools, DVDs, music, and a safe, welcoming environment to browse, do research and learn. 

Your new library card is just a click away. You can now fill out an application online here and submit it. Or if you prefer, you can print your application and choose your card! Just fill it out and mail it in, or drop it off with us.

If you love our new cards, trade in your old card!
