New Castle Public Library began as a subscription library in 1812. In 1965 it moved from its location on 3rd Street (which is now a museum) to its current location on Delaware Street. The building reopened in 2010 after renovations and expansion were completed to meet the growing needs of the community.

The library offers audio, video, magazines, e-books, databases and print materials for all ages. A specialized collection of New Castle history is also available for use within the library. Library programs are offered for all ages and interests, including ESL, GED in Spanish, First Friday Lego Club and Teen’s Game-on. Public access computers, wireless access, and meeting space are available as well.

The library is supported by the enthusiastic New Castle Library Friends who plan fundraisers and an annual book sale.
