Haverstraw Library's Solar Installation
Did you know that Haverstraw Library has solar panels? Late last year into early this year, via a grant, we were able to have solar panels installed on the roof or our main library building in Garnerville. Google Earth has a nice shot of the installation. Check it out above!
News & Events
We are looking to expand our yearbook collection. The Library purchases a copy of the current year's high school yearbook, but all others are donations from the community. If you have a good clean copy of any of the North Rockland School District yearbooks listed below, we'd me more than happy to take it off your hands! To donate or for more information, please call 786-3800 ext. 22. Thank you!
