Thank You Hyde Park Teachers Association!


Our heartfelt thanks go out to the Hyde Park Teachers Association for running their September Golf Outing Fundraiser, an event that raised $2,200 this year for the Hyde Park Library and an equivalent amount for the Staatsburg Library. Three Cheers for all who participated in is remarkable event, and especially to organizer Tim Daniels!

Hyde Park’s “Little Free Library!”

The Hyde Park Free Library is proud to announce its participation — in partnership with the Hyde Park Rotary — in the “Little Free Library” initiative!


It’s a cooperative  “take a book, return a book” community gathering place where neighbors freely share their favorite literature and stories.

Hyde Park’s “Little Free Library” is located in the Stop & Shop Plaza in the Hyde Park Mall where anyone may stop by, peruse our selection, and pick up a book (or two).

Once you’ve had a chance to enjoy your read simply return at your leisure and donate another gently used book  that you’d like to share.

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.
