Visiting the Library

Spend an afternoon at Suffern Free Library. The Library was built with many special features. You will enjoy walking through our nature trail and having lunch outside next to our bronze sculpture. Inside, we have beautiful stained glass windows in the Ramapo Room where you can go do your Local History research, or you can sit by the warm mahogany fireplace and read a magazine or newspaper.

We are looking forward to seeing you at the Library!

Sit, Relax and Read

It’s time to slow down and get back to basics. Take some time for yourself to relax and unwind at the Library. Find a comfortable nook to sit and read.

We have thousands of books, magazines, videos and games available for you to borrow. Come explore our collection. You may find exactly what you are looking for!

Getting Back to Simple Pleasures

Sometimes it’s nice to get back to enjoying the simple things in life. Come work on our Community Puzzle in the main Lobby. You’ll find a new puzzle each week.

We also have Color Me Calm sessions on Fridays at 1:30 pm where you can meet and color with other adults.


The Library has thousands of events each year for all ages. Your teenager can make new friends and get volunteer hours by joining the Suffern Teen Advisory Council. Kids can come to Storytime as early as newborn age or join our Elementary Explorers or attend Discovery Zone workshops. There is so much to do!! Adults are invited to view films, attend concerts and lectures.
