Visiting the Library

The Library is open and we invite you to visit. In addition to reading the newspapers, browsing magazines and our wonderful collection of materials, you can use the computers, our fax, copy, and printers. Notary services are available by appointment, and our meeting rooms are also available. When you come to visit, plan to spend some time at one of our many children’s or adult programs.

We look forward to seeing you!

*Mask guidelines: Masks are optional at Suffern Free Library.

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!

Stay A While

Next time you’re in the Library, plan to spend a few hours. You can spend some time working on our community puzzle, bring your friends and enjoy a game of Scrabble or chess in the cafe or outdoor patio, bring the kids to storytime and other activities in the Children’s Room, or sit on one of our newly refurbished rocking chairs by the fireplace to enjoy the views and read a good book.


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.
