Newburgh Free Library is the main library for Orange County, which is part of the Ramapo-Catskill Library System. Hands down, it has the best selection of books AND of cultural programs. On any given weekend, you can find a concert, art exhibit or other cultural event going on. The excellent staff puts a lot of effort into things such as African American History Month, Women's History Month, an exhibit of artwork by local veterans. The list goes on. This library also has a good selection of new releases. Like all libraries in the RCLS system, if they don't have the book there, they can reserve it for you and it will be there in a matter of days. In an inner city environment, this library is a boon for the kids who are able to come, enjoy the resources (particularly the computers -- they are very popular!), and the respite from the streets.
