We present a free, Java-based library named "AraNLP" that covers various Arabic text preprocessing tools. Although a good number of tools for processing Arabic text already exist, integration and compatibility problems continually occur. AraNLP is an attempt to gather most of the vital Arabic text preprocessing tools into one library that can be accessed easily by integrating or accurately adapting existing tools and by developing new ones when required. The library includes a sentence detector, tokenizer, light stemmer, root stemmer, part-of-speech tagger (POS-tagger), word segmenter, normalizer, and a punctuation and diacritic remover.
