Auto-Renewal of library materials is coming to the Mid-Hudson Library System! Two days before an ELIGIBLE item is due, you will get an email notice to let you know the item has been renewed and will now be due at a later date. If an item can NOT be renewed (for example, if there are additional holds on the item, or the item has reached the maximum number of allowed renewals), a courtesy notice will be sent reminding you the item is due.
Phone calls will NOT be made for auto-renewals. The best way to make sure you know if your items have been renewed via this new process is to update your information at the circulation desk (or call us at 845-266-5530) and make sure we have a valid email address for you.

Book Club News

Monday Evening Book Club
Monday, June 17, 7:00 PM
In June, the Evening Book Club will be discussing The Nightingale by Kristin HannahFrance, 1939 – In the quiet village of Carriveau, Vianne Mauriac says goodbye to her husband, Antoine, as he heads for the Front. She doesn’t believe that the Nazis will invade France … but invade they do, in droves of marching soldiers, in caravans of trucks and tanks, in planes that fill the skies and drop bombs upon the innocent. When a German captain requisitions Vianne’s home, she and her daughter must live with the enemy or lose everything. Without food or money or hope, as danger escalates all around them, she is forced to make one impossible choice after another to keep her family alive.

Vianne’s sister, Isabelle, is a rebellious eighteen-year-old girl, searching for purpose with all the reckless passion of youth. While thousands of Parisians march into the unknown terrors of war, she meets Gäetan, a partisan who believes the French can fight the Nazis from within France, and she falls in love as only the young can … completely. But when he betrays her, Isabelle joins the Resistance and never looks back, risking her life time and again to save others.

In 1940, eighteen-year old Juliet Armstrong is reluctantly recruited into the world of espionage.

But after the war has ended, she presumes the events of those years have been relegated to the past forever.

Ten years later, now a radio producer at the BBC, Juliet is unexpectedly confronted by figures from her past. A different war is being fought now, on a different battleground, but Juliet finds herself once more under threat. A bill of reckoning is due, and she finally begins to realize that there is no action without consequence.
