Morton Welcomes the Holidays!

After a beautification of our beloved Morton Hall, we are thrilled to welcome all with The Third Annual Friends and Rhinebeck Readers Theatre Holiday Celebration.

A Message about Morton Matters from Joanne A. Meyer, Executive Director

We at Morton wish you all a very happy, peaceful holiday season.  We are thankful for the support we receive from our wonderful community of individuals, and we continue to strive to meet your expectations and needs.  Please find some time to plan your reading, viewing, and listening for the coming holiday weeks (and your getaways) by visiting, calling, or using Morton’s online services.  And if you seek that experience of gathering with others, you will be sure to find something appealing if you scroll down and see the list of our upcoming events. Happy Thanksgiving to all!

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.
