The Newburgh Free Library has a lot to offer to preschool children:


  • A large picture book collection
  • Movies and music you can borrow and take home to enjoy
  • AWE Early Literacy Stations™ with a variety of learning games
  • Story Time programs

Our goal is to introduce young children to the library as a fun place to be, and to help children develop a lifelong love of reading.


Story Time Programs are offered seasonally for preschoolers from birth up to age 5.

Want to get a Newburgh Free Library card? Even babies who live in the Newburgh Enlarged City School District are eligible to have a card!
