Message from Morton

Winter has definitely hit us this week but while the temps may be frigid, the days are getting longer, and there is always plenty to enjoy at the library!

Here at Morton we’ve always been very concerned with community. This is not idle talk, your input and your ideas are what make this institution part of all of our lives.

On that note, this weekend the Rhinebeck Grange and the Rhinecliff Fire Department will be putting on their third Rhinecliff Winter Bonfire.  Dress warmly and join in the fun to celebrate Winter around a bonfire made from local holiday trees.  Bring a veggie to add to the Stone Soup and enjoy soup and hot cocoa on-site! Musicians welcome!  The fun begins at 3:00 and goes until 7:00, or until the fire burns down!

And if you are willing to share your talents, we are still looking for visual artists for the art opening on February 28th and for performers and food creators for Friday, March 6th.

Come for the books and stay for the family feeling!

eBooks for Kids!

Overdrive 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.
