Elting Memorial Library is the public library that serves the residents of the village and town of New Paltz, New York. It is located at 93 Main Street (also NY 32 and 299) in the village's downtown area. In addition to a collection typical of most college town libraries, Elting Memorial Library houses the Haviland-Heidgerd Historical Collection, the non-circulating genealogical and historical research collection, with a focus on the history of the Town and Village of New Paltz. This collection features "house books" that detail the history of local homes and buildings, including historic structures. The library gained notoriety in 2007 for a videotaped ghost visit that became the most popular online video about New Paltz.

  • This is what a library should be like! Such a great environment. The librarians are so helpful. Books are organized and easy to find. Great collection of movies. And the newly renovated children's room is wonderful. I especially like the new non-book items that you can take out which include a tent, sewing machine and bocce ball. Elting Library is truly a community treasure
  • Clean, kind, welcoming and inclusive. Been good to it's community for many years.
