Summer Reading Registration Is Open!

We are open for curbside pickup!

Place holds on items through the MHLS catalog. When your items are ready you will receive a notice detailing the pickup procedure.
The library will be offering curbside pickup on the following schedule:
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday noon to 7 p.m.
Wednesday and Friday Noon to 4:30
Saturday 10:30 to 2:30

When you arrive at the library, please call 845-658-9013 from the parking lot and we will check out your items and put them on the table on the front ramp. If you do not have a cell phone, please follow the procedures posted at the front entrance.
Please wear a mask at all times and keep a safe distance from library staff and other patrons.

All returns must be put in our book drop. The book drop will be emptied daily and items will be back dated to the previous date that we emptied the drop. We are sorry that we cannot accept returns in another fashion at this time. All items returned to the library are put through a quarantine procedure which starts in the book drop.

We provide delivery for homebound patrons. If you would like to sign up for this service, please email info@rosendalelibrary.org with the subject line HOMEBOUND DELIVERY, or call the library on Fridays and ask for Diane, 845-658-9013.

We offer curbside fax and copying services by appointment. Please call the library to schedule an appointment and learn about the safety procedures.
Our priority is to keep our patrons and staff safe, and to stop the spread of the virus. We are each responsible for protecting those around us with masks, physical distancing, and cleaning and disinfecting regularly.

Greetings from Rosendale Postcard Challenge!

We have recently added some wonderful old postcards to the Local History page of this website. Thanks to the efforts of our SUNY New Paltz history intern, Dakota, some of our collection of historical postcards can now be viewed from the comfort of your own home.

So here is a challenge. Take a look at these vintage postcards and then create a new local postcard for Rosendale. Your post card should measure 5.5″ wide by 3.5″ tall.

Send us a picture of your new postcard at info@rosendalelibrary.org.  We will post them to our Rosendale Public Library Facebook page and on this website.  When we are all well and the library is open again we will have an event to show off our new cards. Here are some of the postcards we have received so far.


Every person counts!
