The work to repair the plumbing and sewer is nearly complete, but the library will remain closed for one more day,
Thursday August 8th.
We will reopen Friday, August 9th at 10:00 AM. 

As you know, we had to close for several days this week to facilitate the work -  as there was jack-hammering (since the building sits on a concrete slab), and intermittent access to water and toilets. 

We apologize for any inconvenience.
All programs are canceled for these days.
No fines are accrued when the library is closed.
You can still access our online resources 24/7,
right here at

Listen to Audiobooks Without Ever Leaving Home

Listening to an audiobook is a wonderful thing. What if you could listen without ever using a CD player or leaving your home?

Thanks to the library, you can.

Your library card gives you access to two great sources of audiobooks online through OverDrive and RBDigital. OverDrive gives you access to lots of contemporary books and RBDigital has lots of classics.

Listen to audiobooks on your phone, tablet and/or computer, with or without an internet connection. Download the Libby app (OverDrive) and/or RBDigital app to start today.


Watch Independent Films


Here’s even more from RBDigital, courtesy of Ulster County Library Association: IndieFlix!

IndieFlix is a great place to stream independent films. Watch shorts, award winners, social impact films, foreign, documentary, horror, series, romance, classics, cult favorites and more! Access anywhere you can connect to the web.

To recap (and preview), there are many kinds of videos and many ways to stream them through the library:

Stream Movies and Series in Spanish

Introducing– Auto Renewal!

Let your memory relax, Auto Renewals are here. This means pretty much exactly what it sounds like: If you’ve got a book out, and available for renewal, it’ll do so automatically!

Here’s how it works: Two days before your item is due, you will receive an email letting you know your items have been renewed. If you don’t have an email on file with us, your items will still renew, but we won’t be able to contact you!

Your item is eligible for Auto Renewal as long as:

  • Your card is not expired
  • You owe less than $10.00 in fines
  • Your item has not been renewed too many times, and
  • Your item does not have holds on it

Enjoy your extra time with your items and fewer late fines!
It’s the Mid-Hudson Library System’s way of saying we care about our patrons.
