Library Services for All of Newburgh

Newburgh Library Collaborative

The combined resources and services of three major libraries available to all of Newburgh.

That's over 500,000 books and 100 library staffers working for you.

What it means

The Newburgh Library Collaborative (NLC) strengthens educational opportunity in Newburgh by providing access to our collective resources, offering research support, and teaching information literacy skills at every level.

Participating Libraries include:

  • Newburgh Free Library
  • SUNY Orange (Newburgh and Middletown Campuses)
  • Mount Saint Mary College
  • Newburgh Free Academy

What you get

The NLC libraries provide in‐person loan of library materials, reference service, and onsite use of collections to any eligible member of each participating library.

Policies regarding the use of materials and resources may vary at participating libraries. The lending library’s policies apply to all borrowers. For details, please see the NCLS Policies page.

Who can participate

Anyone with a valid library card and a photo ID or a college ID card will be issued a collaborative card.

How much will I save?

A NLC card is free. This saves the visitor’s fee of $50 at Newburgh Free Library, $5 at SUNY Orange Libraries and $20 at Mount Saint Mary College’s Curtin Library.
