The New Rochelle Public Library is a community resource that seeks to improve the life of every citizen in our city. It is dedicated to encouraging learning in all stages of life, to protecting intellectual freedom and to providing fair and equal access to information.

Our Local History Collection continually grows through donations from the public. It now includes over 2,500 non-circulating books, pamphlets, maps and atlases; as well as several hundred oral histories, close to 10,000 photographs and postcards, and over 55,000 reproduced newspaper and magazine clippings. Library staff and volunteers steadily work on the unending task of processing materials for online accessibility.

New Rochelle Public Library is a member of the Southeastern New York Library Resources Council.
