Two libraries, Hurley and West Hurley, both part of the Mid-Hudson Library system. Both function with independent boards.
The West Hurley Public Library, founded in 1956, is a special district library supported by patrons from the Hurley voting districts of 1,3, 5, and 7. Registered voters in these districts decide on board members and budget increases in a special election each September.
In 2005 residents approved a bond issue for the construction of a 1700 square foot library expansion. The library broke ground in March 2006. Construction is currently underway.
The Hurley Library Association, founded in 1958, has been supported throughout the years with money raised by volunteers of the community, (especially the annual Stone House Day book sale), and a yearly stipend from the Town of Hurley. In October 2001 the residents of Hurley voted 204-44 to approve the creation of a special tax district for the Hurley Library. By taxing the residents the library can count on steady funding.
