  • Port Jervis Free Library Hosts Blood Drive

    Tuesday, June 19, 2018 12:00-8:00PM

    The Port Jervis Free Library in partnership with the New York Blood Center will host a blood drive on Tuesday, June 19, from 1:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.  The blood drive will be held downstairs in the library’s Community Room. 
    Your lifesaving blood donations help treat cancer patients, traumatic accident and burn victims, newborn babies and mothers delivering babies, patients undergoing surgery, and many more. On average, hip replacement surgery typically uses one unit of blood, while a cardiac bypass patient may use two units, and a liver transplant can require some six units!
    Any healthy individual aged 17 through 75 and weighing at least 110 pounds, in good physical health and has not given blood in the past eight weeks can donate blood. Donors should eat a moderate meal before donating, and must bring a driver’s license or two other forms of ID to check-in.  All blood types are desired and needed, especially Types O- and O+.
    Walk-in donors are welcome.  For additional information about how to donate or to schedule an appointment, please call the Port Jervis Free Library at 845-856-7313.

Construction @ the Library

New Roof for the Library

Please excuse our appearance while we are under construction at the library. The library roofing project has begun as the construction company sets up the scaffolding around the perimeter of the building. Please be extra careful as the scaffolding does protrude out onto the driveway where cars are traveling. The scaffolding also covers the sidewalk on the driveway side, making it unusable for pedestrians, so please be careful when walking from the back parking lot and around the scaffolding. Some of our library parking spaces in the back of building are also unavailable due to materials being stored in the back parking lot. Thank you for your continued patience during construction.


When visiting the library, please park only in the designated Library Parking Lots or on Pike Street.

Persons parking in the VA Health Clinic or Orange County parking lot behind 150 Pike Street will be subject to ticketing and towing at the owner's expense.  We appreciate your cooperation.
