As the central library for the Mid-York Library System, comprised of all public libraries in Oneida,Herkimer and Madison counties, the Utica Library serves as a regional resource center with one of the largest and most extensive collections in the tri-county area. The mission of the Utica Public Library is to develop the resources that enable us to serve as the source of information for our community.

The library has an impressive genealogy and local history collection, including many atlases and maps.
