About the Valley Cottage Library Association

From our modest beginning in 1959 in a one room storefront on Old Lake Road to our present home nestled among a few acres of woods and lovely gardens on Route 303, Valley Cottage Library has continued to grow as a vital and important community resource. As an association library, we are a not-for-profit educational corporation supported for by the public and administered by a seven member executive board of trustees. Any Valley Cottage resident, 18 years or older and a registered voter may be a member of the Association.
Association membership gives you the ability to play an active role in the continuing development of this important neighborhood institution. Members attend the annual meeting each January and are eligible to run for any open trustee positions on the board and to vote on the operating budget prepared by the board.

Join us in helping libraries change lives.
