New York City firefighter and Sparkill resident Dennis P. McHugh (Engine 22 Ladder 13) was among the approximately 2,800 brave rescue workers and civilians who perished as a result of the September 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center. The Dennis P. McHugh Foundation was established by the friends and family of Dennis to honor him and to ensure that his legacy lives on in as dignified a fashion as he lived his life.
The Foundation focused its efforts by making a $500,000 contribution toward the construction of a new home for this library, which opened as the Dennis P. McHugh Piermont Public Library in March 2007.
In the second half of the 19th century, a movement for public libraries began in the U.S. There is some evidence that starting in the 1870’s there were groups interested in creating a library in Piermont. But it wasn’t until 1896 that today’s library became an official entity. Read more »
The Piermont Library has defined its mission as follows:
To assemble, preserve and administer books and related educational and recreational material in order to promote the communications of ideas, an enlightened citizenship and enriched personal lives.
To serve the community as a center of reliable information.
To provide a place where inquiring minds may encounter the original, sometimes unorthodox or critical thought so necessary to a society that depends for its survival on the free competition of ideas.
To seek continually to identify community needs and to provide programs of service to meet such needs.
Monthly meetings: the Library Board usually meets the first Wednesday of the month at 7:30 p.m. Please call the library for specific dates.
In April of 1990, the Friends of the Piermont Public Library was formed by a group of residents interested in building community support for the library. The Friends raise funds for the library through their programs and activities, and provide a liaison between the library board and the community at large. New members are always welcome.
Contact: Helene Winson at (845)398-3238.
