A Message from Morton

REMINDER: September is National Library Card Sign Up Month!  If you are reading this and don’t have a card please stop in to the library and sign up immediately!  Your library card gives you access to books, cds, dvds, etc. You can have unlimited access to all the great things in the Mid-Hudson Library System, subscription newspapers, thousands of magazine and journal articles and great special interest resources. It also allows you to go online and check out ebooks and audio books through Overdrive.  Your card is good in all 66 Mid-Hudson libraries.

There is always lots to read and do at Morton.  Check out below for fun activities; something to interest everyone.  If you don’t see anything that piques your interest, stop in and suggest something.  We are always looking for more fun programming possibilities!

eBooks for Kids!

The library has expanded services with a new digital collection website experience just for kids. The main MHLS Digital Download Collection now has a separate site to provide a safe and easy browsing experience for kids.

Libraries recognize the need to provide a safe environment for kids to browse library materials. Just as the children’s section of the physical library has its own place, the same experience is now available in the digital collection for kids eBooks and audiobooks. Browsing can be done by subject, reading level or interest level. Check out the Kid’s eReading Room.
