Currently, the Archives' Reading Room is still open onTuesdays and Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. However, we ask that you contact us before coming in to speak to and review with an Archivist your planned visit.

If we can assist you by doing the research by mail, we would prefer to do so. We will be evaluating requests on a case-by-case basis.

In an abundance of caution, we are reducing social contact and request that you use our Research By Mail option or, if possible, wait until a later time to continue your research in person.

If you have any questions or concerns, contact us.

The Archives' offices are open Monday through Friday, except government holidays, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

If you are planning a trip to the Archives, please call or e-mail first to confirm the hours. A photo I.D. must be presented when registering to do research in the Reading Room.

Please review the Archives Reading Room page for more information about conducting research at the Archives.

For departmental research requests, Westchester County employees should call for an appointment.

Also located at our facility in Elmsford are the Greater Hudson Heritage Network and the Westchester County Historical Society, whose collections are also available in the Archives Reading Room.
