Caregivers Resources                 Jan. 15, 2019

The Caregivers Resources Guide highlights library services (like Extension Services, Accessibility and Talking Book and Braille Library) and provides direct links to e-resources, print materials and media available online and in the Mid-Hudson Library System to assist caregivers with their daily routine.

Type a word into the search box if you can’t remember where you read it last on any Guide created by the Poughkeepsie Public Library.

Click on the Disease/Disability name to view a list of titles available in the MHLS’s online catalog, or, …visit the library and Browse the non-fiction collection using the Dewey numbers listed in the right-hand column next to the Disease/Disability.

*Note: some subjects have more than one Dewey number because they are found in multiple locations.

As always, please feel free to request materials by calling 845-876-2903

A Message from Morton

Lots of interesting events taking place this January that will give you impetus to leave the comfort of the warmth of your home 🙂  Of course you don’t need to leave your own home to be able to download books through Overdrive!

We are sad to share the news that Ruth Boyd, a previous library director, has passed away at age 90.  Ruth lived in Rhinecliff and presided over the library until the end of 1999. She ‘trained’ Joanne Meyer in her own inimitable style and then remained a loyal patron until her move to Long Island in 2012.  After leaving her post as director, Ruth could often be found presiding over the ‘better’ books at many Morton book sales.

And speaking of book sales, please stop by on Saturday to shop our sale from 10 am – 2 pm.
Check out below for other interesting classes, concerts, art shows, and movies that you can enjoy.

This year Morton will celebrate our 10th Annual Community Talent Show.  Please contact sandy[at]mortonrhinecliff.org if you are interested in sharing your visual, performance, and or culinary talents this year!!

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.
