Saratoga Springs Public Library

49 Henry Street
Saratoga Springs , NY 12866

The Saratoga Springs Public Library is located on almost 2 acres in downtown Saratoga Springs, just east of Broadway, between Henry and Putnam Streets. The library plays a vital role in the community and offers multiple services and programs.

The library houses well over 200,000 items and a staff of both voluteers and paid personnel keep the library's daily operations running smooth. In addition to lending books and other media, the library offers extensive well-attended programs, provides access to public computers, and maintains three meeting rooms for use by non-profit and community groups. From toddler story time and adult reading groups to a broad variety of hands-on computer training courses to film forums and classes on everything from meditation to parenting and tax help... the Saratoga Springs Public Library has built a well-deserved reputation for excellence.

You can typically find the library open Mon-Thursday 9 am to 9 pm; Friday 9 am to 6 pm; Saturday 9am to 5 pm; and Sunday 12 pm to 5 pm. Hours vary for specific collections - such as their history section (The Saratoga room) and the library is closed most holidays.
