Catskill Public Library

Welcome to the vibrant Catskill Public Library, where curiosity meets community! Established in 1893 and nestled in a charming neo-classical building, courtesy of Andrew Carnegie’s visionary grant in 1901, we’ve been fostering a love for learning and discovery for over a century.

Located at the lively intersection of Franklin and Bridge Streets in the heart of the Village of Catskill, our library is more than just a building—it’s a hub of creativity and connection. Whether you’re exploring our captivating local history collection, including the esteemed A. Fred Saunders Hudson River Steamboats Collection, or diving into one of our dynamic programs, there’s something here for everyone.

Plus, thanks to our partnership with the Mid-Hudson Library System, you have access to the entire holdings of its 66 libraries, available for pickup right here at our library. And with our dedicated and helpful staff on hand to offer, technology appointments, office services, reader’s advisory and reference, you’re never far from the support you need.
