The Friends of the Pleasant Valley Library are holding another yard sale! The sale will be held at the Pleasant Valley Town Hall on September 26th from 9:00 a.m – 3:00 p.m, rain or shine. Those who want to sell their new and gently used goods at the yard sale must pay a non-refundable $25 registration fee which will benefit the library. Registration for this event will begin on August 24th. All registrations must be done in person at the library. Payment will be required at the time of registration. When you register, you will be able to pick out your spot in the Town Hall parking lot for the sale. This is done on the basis of first come, first served, so if you know where you want to set up for the day, it’s better to register early. Call 845-635-8460 for more information.

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.
It’s been mentioned before, but bears repeating. The Book Discussion Group meets on the Third Wednesday of every month from 7-8 pm. Check out our events calendar for a listing of which titles have been picked for discussion.
The library offers a FREE monthly meditation group led by certified hypnotherapist and Reiki Master Susan Olin-Dabrowski. First time and experienced meditators are welcome. Meditation can help manage stress and improve quality of life. No registration is necessary, walk-ins are welcome. The group will meet the last Tuesday of every month.
