Library History

The Daniel Pierce Library is nestled in the scenic Catskill Mountains just 100 miles from New York City. Daniel Pierce, a successful native son, donated the original building, which was completed in 1902.

Today, more than 100 years later, the original 1902 building is restored to its former beauty, and a new 23,500 square-foot addition houses a Children’s Literacy Center, Reading Room, Community Center, and Computer facilities with free, building-wide WiFi access. People of all ages regularly utilize the Daniel Pierce Library facilities. The Library sponsors enrichment programs and also serves as a community center and meeting facility.

Because of an incredible Library Board, a dedicated staff, a heroic volunteer network, and wonderfully supportive patrons, the Daniel Pierce Library continues to fulfill its mission of providing excellent library services to the residents of the Tri-Valley community.
