The Palisades Free Library enjoys a unique relationship with the hamlet of Palisades as a vibrant cultural landmark. The library’s mission is to promote, support and sustain this relationship through its work as a public resource for education, information, and enlightenment. It will continue to promote intellectual freedom and public discourse, as it adapts to the changing cultural and intellectual needs of its citizens. The Palisades Free Library endeavors to fulfill its mission through responsible governance, ensuring a consistent and durable future for itself and for the residents of Palisades.

From the very beginning in 1891, the Palisades Library has collected materials on the history of Palisades. Some highlights are photographs, maps, the Gesner Diary (1829 - 1850), and the 10964 newsletter (1977 - present).
