The Hyde Park Library Children’s Room will be closed from November 16th to November 30th for renovation.


The Upstairs Area will remain open during this time.


We regret any inconvenience but wish to assure you we remain available to assist you in ordering children’s materials from other libraries in the MHL System or even through interlibrary loan to libraries outside the system. We hope you will be as excited as we are to see the newly renovated children’s room when you revisit it at the beginning of December. (NOTE: we’re making such progress it may even be a bit earlier than that–whatever the case, it’s sure to be a great way to ring in the holiday season!)


Pick up your Santa Christmas Countdown! Available starting Wednesday, November 25th. Reserve and pick up your calendar by calling us at 845-229-7791.

A Message To Our Community From The Board of Trustees of the Hyde Park Free Library

We the Board of Trustees of the Hyde Park Free Library, a public library, state our support for the current social movement of Black Lives Matter, social movement for equality. At this historic time, we profess unambiguously our belief in equality and justice for all our neighbors.

The library is a place to equalize access to resources which include information, computer access, and a safe place to learn and join with others.

Our mission (adapted in 2009) is “to provide equal and open access to books and other materials, information, and related public library services to support the diverse educational, recreational, and cultural goals of community members of all ages”. All are welcome and no one will be denied access to assistance or other resources.

We all thrive and are free only if each person thrives and is free. Our library, including its building, was a gift from the Roosevelts to the town of Hyde Park. Treating all people equally and encouraging each person to grow and thrive in our democracy, which necessitates shared information and knowledge, is key to the Roosevelt’s dedication to our country and our world. Come and learn more about FDR’s Four Freedoms and ER’s (Eleanor Roosevelt) Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

The time is now to stand with our fellow neighbors and to promote respect, equal rights, and equal justice for all. Let us learn from each other and move forward together.

Hyde Park Free Library Board of Trustees
