Attention Port Jervis Free Library cardholders
Effective February 26, 2014
The Thrall Public Library District of Middletown and Wallkill has instituted a restriction for ALL Port Jervis Free Library cardholders when borrowing items from their library. The following resolution will become effective immediately:

Restrict the patrons of Port Jervis Free Library from borrowing any of Thrall Public Library District of Middletown and Wallkill's audiovisual or print materials that are less than one year old.

Please note that these restrictions do not apply when borrowing materials from your home library, the Port Jervis Free Library, located at 138 Pike Street, Port Jervis, NY.

As always, thank you for your continued patronage!

Beverly Arlequeeuw, Director

Get Your New York City Public Library Card
Most people in Orange County may not be aware that anyone who lives, works or goes to school anywhere in New York (yes, anywhere in the state) can get a New York City public library card and download ebooks and audio books from the New York City library system without ever having to step foot in New York City.

Simply go to, click on "Using the Library," and then click on "Get a Library Card." Provide the requested information and within weeks you will be sent your New York City library card. You can then go on the New York Public Library web site and download ebooks and audio books just like you do in our own Ramapo Catskill Library System. Now you have both library systems at your fingertips!

ATTENTION All Local Artists
Are you an artist and wish you had a place to display your artwork? The Port Jervis Free Library Art Gallery in our new Community Room might be that place to showcase your work. Contact the Library at 845-856-7313 if you are interested in displaying your work. The exhibits will change every 4-6 weeks. Please note: The sale of the art works at the library is to be handled by the artist and the buyer. The library will not be involved in the sale of art works.
