Library holdings include more than 15,000 published volumes; an extensive archive representing Staten Island families, businesses, and organizations from the 1600s to the present day; and thousands of photographs of local people and places.
The library is open by appointment only for anyone who wishes to conduct research on site; we will also make every effort to respond to research requests.
