From the latest bestsellers to literary classics, the Newburgh Free Library is sure to have something for your leisure reading.

Or browse the older fiction area to discover a hidden gem or revisit an old favorite. Here you will find older fiction in all genres, classic paperbacks, and a great selection of large print books.
If it’s non-fiction you’re looking for, browse our vast stacks downstairs on the second floor.
And if we do not own what you are looking for in the Library’s Online Catalog, try one of these options. If we do own the book and it is checked out, simply place a hold on the title in the Online Catalog and we will notify you as soon as it is available.
