Great Give Back

Libraries across the state want to give their patrons a chance to give back to the community. This year, we will be collecting donations for the Webutuck Central School District’s BackPack Program, which helps meet the needs of hungry children during weekends, when they do not have access to free/reduced meal programs that schools offer.

The program provides back packs filled with shelf-stable, child-friendly food that can be easily prepared and consumed. Back packs are packed by Webutuck staff and discreetly distributed on Friday afternoons to participating children. The actual day of The Great Give Back is October 19, but we will be collecting donations starting on October 1st.

We are accepting the following items:

  • Breakfast items: cereal, instant oatmeal, graham crackers, granola bars
  • Entrees: macaroni and cheese, peanut butter, jelly/jam, canned tuna fish, canned soup/stew
  • Juice boxes (100% juice)
  • Canned vegetables
  • Snack foods: microwaveable popcorn, individual packages of cookies, crackers and puddings.

Please be sure that all food items donated are not expired and that they are sealed. Expired or open containers will not be accepted.

We will have an Amazon Wish List available for online shopping available from  October 1st – October 31st.

eBooks for Kids!

Overdrive 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.
