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.

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.

Meditation Group

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.
