Rosendale and its many charming hamlets are surrounded by natural beauty. Plus there’s a famous pickle festival every November.
Rosendale already had libraries in the nineteenth century when libraries were rather rare, restricted, and children were not allowed entrance. Various local cement concerns had private company libraries. A "Library and Gymnasium" appear on an 1898 map of Main Street, Rosendale, although its exact use is unknown. The building is still there today. The Rosendale Public Library is a member of the Mid-Hudson library system consortium.
