Fast forward to 1972, and a brand new library building was built, thanks to a generous donation. This new space became the heart and soul the community and was dedicated to a special person named Miss Elma Blackmore. It's been a place of learning and good times ever since and they aren't slowing down now.

Honoring a Piece of County History

Being the oldest library in Broome County is something to celebrate, and the Nineveh Public Library is inviting everyone to join in the fun, as it celebrates its beginnings and looks ahead for more great times to come.
