No Book Sale In 2018

Book Sale Update

The Patterson Library Friends regrettably announce they will not hold their Annual Book Sale in 2018. They would like to thank all our local partners and everyone that supported the sale in the past. While it was a great fundraising success for many years, the task of overseeing and managing the sale became impossible for the handful of volunteers that gave months of their time to make it happen. The lack of new volunteers and rising expenses were also factors in their decision. For anyone wishing to donate books or find a sale, you can check out booksalefinder.com, a site which many libraries use to list their sales. We appreciate your continued support and will keep you posted on future fundraising events.

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.
