Founded in 1952, the library has the special features of a local history museum, a large community room, and a continuous book sale.
The mission of the Olive Free Library is to provide our community and its surrounding neighbors with materials and services that meet educational, informational, cultural and recreational needs. It also provides a site for community activities that meet the same needs.
The general goals of the library are to maintain a core collection of materials that are: useful and current whether for general educational, basic skill development or recreational needs, and culturally important to the community, e.g. local history and culture.
Olive Free Library is a member of the Southeastern New York Library Resources Council.
