A Message from Morton

Spring has sprung and we welcome folks to stop in to check out a gardening book or borrow some seeds from our seed library! We will be working around the library itself in the next few weeks to make some improvements and to get ourselves ready for the sunny weather with new seed and pollinator gardens.

Please join us as we welcome back Mia Tomic for a beginning yoga course, Matt Schreiber and Ben Russell with their amazing music on Saturday, April 27th, and come out on Sunday, April 28th to help us clean up the Rhinecliff hamlet for our own Earth Day celebration.

Mark your calendars for this year’s Morton Day on Saturday, May 19th. We will be celebrating with an old fashioned ice cream social – all are welcome!

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.
