Clifton Park-Halfmoon Public Library


The Clifton Park-Halfmoon Library serves a population of approximately 56,000 in the towns of Clifton Park and Halfmoon. The mission of the Library’s Local History Room is to collect, preserve, and make accessible materials that document all years of the history of the two towns.

In addition to artifacts, reference books, and a clippings file, we also hold two large archival collections on deposit: the Pre-Shenendehowa Schools Collection and the Town of Clifton Park History Collection. We also maintain the Library’s own archival collection.

Clifton Park-Halfmoon Public Library is a member of the Capital District Library Council.
