Visiting the Library During COVID

The Library is open and we invite you to spend an hour at Suffern Free Library. During this time of COVID, things are a little different. We now have occupancy limits and seating is limited, but most services are available. You can use the computers for 60 minutes a day per person, our fax, copy, and printers are available, and you may even schedule an appointment with our Notary Public. All returns must be made through the drive thru automated book drop.

We are looking forward to seeing you at the Library…with your mask on!

Relax and Read

It’s time to slow down and get back to basics. Take an hour for yourself to relax and unwind at the Library.

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

Curbside Pickup is Available

COVID has forced us to slow down, and what better way than with a good book. If you don’t feel comfortable visiting the Library, call us at (845) 357-1237 to arrange your curbside pickup. We will have your books ready for you when you come.


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.
