A Message from Morton

Please stop in to see the creations of your friends and neighbors in honor of this year’s Sheep and Wool Festival! Morton Hall truly is aglow with the beauty.

Whether you come to learn about the NYS Constitutional Convention, sponsored by the Rhinebeck Grange; to hear great music at Rocco Jerry’s accordion afternoon, Richard’s Acoustic Night, or the Roland Vazquez Quintet; to see the original Planet of the Apes, to learn more about the environmental movement with director Robert Stone; to declutter or to add to your collection at the Morton Friends Porch Sale; please know that you are always welcome at Morton.

Note:  The meetings of the Morton Board are held on the first Thursday of every month at 5:30 p.m.  The public is always 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.
