About Us


Welcome to the Newburgh Free Library!  Since 1852 we have provided library resources that enhance our residents’ quality of life.  We offer lifelong learning opportunities for all ages.  NFL is an active community and economic development institution, addressing such key issues as literacy, job information, early childhood education and community vitality.

NFL’s service area is the Newburgh Enlarged City School District, making us the hometown library for the City of Newburgh, the Town of Newburgh, and the Town of New Windsor. The Newburgh Free Library has large and diverse collections of books, movies, and music. We lend digital download media in the form of eBooks, eMovies and eMusic. As one of the area’s cultural and education centers, we offer programs for all ages. You can enjoy free WiFi at our computers, desktop or laptop, and expand your technology skills at our free classes in the eLearning Center.
