A Century of Community

For more than 100 years, the Hornell Public Library has given the people of Hornell, NY, a welcoming place to congregate and enjoy reading and learning. Whether you’re looking for a book, audiobook, CD, or DVD, our friendly staff is always ready and willing to help you find it.

Our collection of materials is vast, but we’d particularly like to highlight our extensive number of children's books, many of which are primarily written in Spanish and French. In addition to the numerous pieces of literature that we have on hand, our patrons have access to a number of reference databases, such as America's News Database, Hornell Evening Tribune, and Heritage Quest.
