Explore the Museum's Rare Book Collection

Museum Village is partnering with local libraries to give our community access to our rare book collection. Head to one of our library partners and dive into a whole new world of reading.

We have books on the following topics:

  • Local Hudson Valley History
  • Poetry, Music, and Arts
  • Gardening
  • Economics and Politics
  • Military

For the first time in Museum Village's history, these books are accessible for research and enjoyment. Start your journey at the Monroe Free Library!


Rare Reading Launch

Tuesday, January 18 at 3 pm at the Monroe Free Library.

Be Apart of our Library Partner Program

We lease part of our collection out to established public libraries, universities, and educational institutions throughout the Hudson Valley.
