The Hillside Public Library is established for the purpose of providing all residents of School District No. 5 with access to books, pamphlets, periodicals, audio-visual resources, and services which will satisfy their needs to become better educated, better informed, and to better enjoy their leisure time.
The Hillside Public Library proudly serves the residents of both the Incorporated Village of New Hyde Park and the Unincorporated New Hyde Park communities. In addition to the items in our Adult and Juvenile collections, the Hillside Public Library is a member of the Nassau Library's System ALIS consortium. This partnership allows our patrons to access items through the shared collections of other Nassau County public libraries. Please see our Reference Staff for more information.
