About the Library

The Claverack Library was founded in 1891. Monthly Board of Trustees meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month at 5:00 p.m. at the library. Meetings are open and the public is welcome to attend.

Our New Library Building

The Claverack Library is working to refurbish the adjacent former A.B. Shaw firehouse into our new library. The new building will provide space to house our growing book, audio and DVD collection, room for computer users, room for additional programming, room for staff, and so much more. To find information about this exciting project, please go to http://www.claverackfreelibrary.org/.
