NEW HOURS FOR LOCAL HISTORY COLLECTION
TUESDAYS and THURSDAYS 11am-5pm

Starting in October 2016, the Local History Coordinator, Linda Tantillo, will be at the library from 11 am to 5 pm, Tuesdays and Thursdays only. 

For research help, contact Linda by email at rosendalelibrary@hvi.net att:Linda, or phone the library at 845-658-9013 to make an appointment.  Please give your search topic and any relevant information so she will be better able to help you.  The Local History Search Request Form below can be downloaded.

We have a large selection of local history books in the Local History Reference area that are available for public use whenever the library is open.   We also have some local history books in our circulating collection.  In addition, we have created compilations of information on many local topics.  These items are unique and available by request only.  Other library staff members will be able to get these materials for you and give some general help, but don’t have time to do research.

Please download form below, scan after filled and send back by return email or mail or bring into the library.
