About this organization






Elting Memorial Library is chartered to serve the town including the village of New Paltz, to provide all library services. While the current population of our charted area is 14,003, we often provide programs and services to a wider population. See our mission statement in Schedule O., it accomplishes this program service by purchasing over 2,000 books, e-books, audio and video recordings annually. The reading area has a significant number of national and local newspapers and magazines for patrons. For home bound patrons a book delivery service is provided. Our patrons benefited by interlibrary loan and received 22k items and our library loaned out 17k items. In addition, there are programs for children, including home schooled, teens, adults, and a historical section unique to the area. Public computers are available for adults, teens and children. Over 50 adult program events were hosted including Music in the Garden, Chinese New Year, talks on immigration, financial literacy, hosting local authors to discuss their books, and art exhibits for local authors and photographers.
