As Spring cleaning season approaches, we would like to remind you that the library can only accept donations of recent materials in good condition. Books that are mildewed, stained, or smell of smole or mold will be discarded immediately. We do not accept encyclopedia sets or magazines. Many of these materials can be recycled through your home paper recycling pickup, so don't feel you have to just put them in the trash.
As always, we ask that you only bring a bag or two full of books to donate at any one time - we don't have space to store boxes full of materials. Thank you for your generosity and cooperation. And don't forget to check out the free shelves below the window in our lobby - someone may have donated someething that you would just love to read!

Haverstraw Library is Going Green with Solar Panels!
Maybe you've seen the crew walking on top of our roof or maybe heard the pounding, drilling and other odd noises... So what's going on at the library?
Due to a grant from the NYS Education Department and NYS Energy Reasearch and Development Agency, we are fortunate to have the ability to install solar panels on the roof of our main library building in Garnerville. We expect to have the system switched over by November and anticipate generating 12% of our electricity wherein our break-even period is less than three years. Our solar panels will generate power on snow, rainy and cloudy days. You now have the ability to monitor the power we've generated in our lobby. We hope you're as excited as we are in "going green!"
