About Us:

The New Rochelle Public Library (NRPL) offers a comprehensive collection that includes retrospective and current materials; up-to-date technology by which information can be accessed; and a wide range of community services and programs tailored to a diverse audience. Chartered in 1894, NRPL is a school-district library with its own operating budget and a Board of Trustees comprised of seven elected members. It has served the 72,000 residents of New Rochelle from its main library building in the downtown business district since 1979. 

A smaller branch, located in the park in front of the New Rochelle High School, was restored through a grassroots effort and reopened as the Huguenot Children’s Library in 1997. 


The New Rochelle Public Library is a community resource that seeks to improve the life of every citizen in our city. It is dedicated to encouraging learning in all stages of life, to protecting intellectual freedom and to providing fair and equal access to information.

Trustees are elected to serve four-year terms in elections that are conducted on the third Tuesday of May. The Library Board of Trustees meets at the Library on the second Thursday of each month at 7:30 pm. Meetings are open to the public. If you wish to contact the Board of Trustees please email
