Local History in the Ramapo Room
As you enter the adult reference room, look straight across to the beautiful stained glass windows over the doorway to the Ramapo Room. Here, in our local history room, you will find a collection of books, old newspapers, maps and clippings on the history of Rockland County, with an emphasis on the Western Ramapo area. The Library owns a complete file of The Journal News on microfilm, as well as historical census information and city directories.
We also have a collection of historical photographs. Not all photographs have been identified. If you recognize an unidentified photograph, please inform the reference librarian.
For access to the Ramapo Room, ask a reference librarian.
The Library Association of Rockland County is sponsoring a project to have libraries’ photo and postcard collections digitized. The photos
can be viewed at www.hudsonvalleyheritage.org.
