If We Don’t Have the Book

Can’t find what you’re looking for at our library? Here are a few options for you to try:

If the item you want is available from another library in the Ramapo Catskill Library System, you can use your library card to place a hold in the Catalog, and the item will be shipped to the Newburgh Free Library for you to borrow.

If the item is not listed in the Library Catalog, we can try getting it for you from WorldCat, a database that connects us to a wide network of libraries. You may request an item through Interlibrary loan at one of our Information desks or by calling 563-3625 or 563-3626.

Here are a few things to keep in mind about Interlibrary loan service:

  • Items requested through Interlibrary Loan must be older than one year.
  • The ILL process usually takes anywhere from two to three weeks, although difficult to  obtain items may take longer.
  • The service is free, but some libraries may charge up to $10.00 to loan an item. You will need to let the librarian know in advance the maximum charge you are willing to pay.
  • Loan periods vary depending on the lending library.

We welcome your suggestions! Use the form below to recommend a book, an audio book, a DVD or CD to add to the library’s collection. Please wait to submit a suggestion for purchase until after the item has been published.

A word about TV series:
While we will continue to update the TV series we already collect, we will need to be selective when adding new titles due to space and budgetary constraints.
