Patterson Library Friends Donate New Scanner & More

Thanks to the Patterson Library Friends, the library now has a state of the art public scanner. The scanner is one of several gifts donated to the library by the Friends group, which aims to support library services and programs through fundraising efforts. With a very successful first year of fundraising events that included the book sale and holiday ornament sale, the Friends were able to purchase new iPads for the Family Center, a brand new book drop at the Putnam Lake Market, and provide funding for the museum pass program as well as pay for enhancements to the community room. For information about joining the Patterson Library Friends, email friends@pattersonlibrary.org144 - Copy

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.
