Newburgh Library Collaborative

The combined resources and services of three major libraries made available to all of Newburgh. That’s over 500,000 books and 100 library staffers working for you!

What it means

The Newburgh Library Collaborative (NLC) strengthens educational opportunity in Newburgh by providing access to our collective resources, offering research support, and teaching information literacy skills at every level.

Participating libraries include:

  • Newburgh Free Library
  • SUNY Orange (Newburgh campus)
  • Mount Saint Mary College

What you get

The NLC libraries provide in-person loan of library materials, reference service, and onsite use of collections to any eligible member of each participating library.

Policies regarding the use of materials and resources may vary at participating libraries. The lending library’s policies apply to all borrowers.

Who can participate?

Anyone with a valid library card from one of the participating libraries can get shared access.

Please note: The Newburgh Free Library cannot issue library cards to patrons that live in another Library area within the Ramapo Catskill Library System (RCLS).
