Welcome to the North Chatham Free Library, located in the charming, historic hamlet of North Chatham. Since we opened in 1914, the library has been a gathering place for members of the community. We sponsor diverse programs throughout the year for all ages. The library maintains collections of books, books on CD and DVDs, computers, a printer and a fax for public use. With your library card, you are a member of the Mid-Hudson library system, so besides having access to the collections of 70 other libraries, you can also use downloadable audios, eBooks, and online databases. Come and visit us. Your library card is a path from this lovely hamlet to the global community and back again.
