The New City Library connects people, information and ideas to promote lifelong learning, literacy development and community involvement to improve the quality of life for its patrons.

The library was founded in 1936 and was originally housed in the New City School. Books were provided primarily by the school and by public donation. The library received $100 in state aid, and matching funds were raised by Library Committee bake sales, tea parties, book sales, and fashion shows. Today the library is a modern facility serving nearly 50,000 people, in the communities of New City, Congers, and Bardonia, with a collection of about 150,000 volumes and a circulation of one half million.

The Rockland Room, New City's local history room, has the largest collection of printed histories of Rockland County and its communities. Spanning from the far past to current day, the works cover everything from maps to family histories.
