Mechanicville District Public Library

190 North Main Street
Mechanicville, NY 12118


Plans for a new high school in 1965 made no provisions for public service. The Public Library Development committee met for the first time in June 1965. After much work and deliberation of what kind of library to have, on May 5, 1966 by a vote of 574-130, The Mechanicville District Public Library was established. Her Provisional Charter was granted by the Board of Regents on June 24, 1966 and an agreement for inclusion in the South Adirondack Library System was made on June 28, 1966.The Library opened to the public in an old brick house at 15 South Main Street in February 1967, with Elizabeth Morse as its first Director.
