While We’re Closed….

The Staatsburg Library is temporarily closed, but has lots to offer you, even from home. Get help by email, and access library resources, including books and audiobooks.


Need WiFi? You can access ours from your car in our parking lot, in the gazebo, or anywhere in front of the building.

Worried about overdue books? Don’t be! For the safety of the community and our patrons, the book drops are closed. Please keep your books; all due dates have been changed to April 20, and all fines will be waived.

Need a library card? If you live in our service area, click here and fill out a request form. You will receive an email with your library card number and temporary PIN. This library card number and PIN can be used to access all of our e-Library including eBooks, downloadable audio books, streaming videos, and databases without having to come to the Library!

If you want to check out any physical items or visit other libraries in Mid-Hudson Library System, you will need your physical Library Card. Simply visit the check-out desk at the branch you designated in the form with valid photo ID and address verification. An example of address verification can be an envelope (recently postmarked) with your current address, such as a utility bill. If you are new to the area and your photo ID doesn’t have your current address, please bring two pieces of mail with your current address.
