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.

Enjoy a wonderful day outdoors at Patterson Library Park.  The new grant funded lighting, patio, benches and beautiful landscaping make it the perfect destination to have a picnic, read a newspaper, take a coffee break, check out the veggies in the garden or just soak in the sun while the kids play life-size games.

Borrow our Garden Tools!

With a small refundable deposit and your library card, you can borrow rakes, shovels, cultivators, planters, leaf blowers, post-hole diggers and other basic tools to help you with your home gardening projects! Special thanks to the United Way of Westchester & Putnam and Tractor Supply for helping to make this project a reality!
