A Message from Morton

The weather is perfect and the Morton calendar is full of lots of events for all tastes – ideal, correct?  Just check our calendar for theatre, music, movies, and Sustainability events.

Don’t forget we have lots of great books, movies, and music for your quieter enjoyment.  Looking for a place to do a bit of work where your chores are not calling to you?  Check out our reading room – this has become one of our most popular features – folks use it for reading the paper, studying, writing, tutoring, and even to conduct interviews.

We are here for you whatever your needs.  We have you covered if it’s too warm – ac in Morton Hall; too sunny – the cozy reading room; or too indoors – the rocking chairs on the porch just beg to be utilized.  There is lettuce to be picked from the window boxes, lovely people behind the front desk, and all of the items that the Mid-Hudson Library System has to offer.

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.
