And so the construction begins...

We have received word from our landlord that the building's facade reconstruction project has started. Library patrons will notice that the parking lots and entrances to the building on the Firemen's Way side and Rt.55 side of the building may periodically be blocked off. Parking may be available in those lots closest to the building or you can park in the large lots on the south side of the building. Those parking on the south side can enter the building using either of the 2 hallway doors located in the back of the building and look for the bright pink library signs.


The Library's outside book/media drop box has been temporarily relocated to the back of the building on the south side, near Hawk Meadow Montessori's gym.

Click here to see an architectural rendering of the project. For questions or concerns, please contact our landlord, Mrs. Page-Earle at (845)483-1001.

Donations are accepeted on:

Items must be in excellent condition.  Please refer to the Friends of LaGrange Library Donation Policy for information on what items qualify.  Your donations are tax deductible and receipts are available at the Circulation Desk upon request.  As a courtesy to our fellow tenants, please do not leave donations in the hallway, as it creates a fire safety and tripping hazard.
