Reading Room

Starting August 26th the Archives Reading Room will be open one day a week, on Wednesdays, with two sessions: from 9:30-11:30 and 1:30-3:30, by appointment only.

Please arrive on time, as we cannot extend research sessions due to the new safety procedures. A maxiumum of 2 patrons at a time will be allowed per session. Please see our list of steps we are taking to help keep the Reading Room safe for patrons.

Patrons are requested to wear facial masks that cover the nose and mouth and must be worn at all times in the building.

Please review the Archives' Guide to Collections and the Westchester County Historical Society online catalog before your visit, and submit all research requests to the Archives Reference Desk.

Also, we encourage you to take photos of materials rather than request photocopies whenever possible.
