A Message from Morton

We are very sad to share the news that Rhinecliff resident and dear friend, Jeff Miranda, passed away this past Saturday.  We are so lucky to have known Jeff and to have counted he and Leslie as perfect neighbors.  Jeff was not only always ready with a smile and a hug but was first to be willing to help out with any library building details.  He wanted to make sure that anyone who worked at Morton felt safe and knew that he was just a door away.  The Rhinecliff bonfire, which Jeff rarely missed, will be held next weekend to allow everyone to attend his memorial at Dapson Chestney this Saturday.

This week’s weather serves as a reminder to keep in touch with everyone during potentially bad weather. We post on cancellations.com, our Facebook page, our Instagram site and our website’s homepage.

Please know that we are fine free and that your safety is much more important to us than getting an item returned ‘on time’!

If you are stuck at home Mid-Hudson offers many great opportunities through our website:  check out a new craft with CreativeBug, learn about a new interest (Universal Class), or check out HooplaLibby/Overdrive, or the catalog and order items from the comfort of your warm home!

Don’t miss the chance to see the 5 x 5 show which is up through this weekend.  We are also closing in on last call for: monologues, art for the visual component of the talent show, and acts for the talent show.  Chad is already getting pieces for the train station show and that has its own deadline – when the construction changes the face of the station.

Mask use at Morton is optional but encouraged for all visitors.
As always, if you are not feeling well, please stay home.
We continue to offer curbside assistance.
We are again offering free Covid tests.
