Library History

The Schuylerville Public Library service district encompasses portions of seven towns and two villages and represents an area rich in historical heritage, agriculture, and strong community. The Library aims to find ways to bridge the area’s vibrant heritage with the innovations and developments of a modern community.

Originally chartered in 1905 to serve the residents of the Village of Schuylerville, the Library has continuously grown and evolved to meet the needs of its patrons. In 2013, the Library re-chartered to serve as a School District Public Library, which increased the service population to nearly 10,000 residents. Since 2013, the Library staff and Boards of Trustees, along with the public, have made great improvements to the facilities, accessibility, budget, staffing, and services. The Library and staff members have been recognized with service awards and accolades for the important work done here.
