What Does The 414 Mean For You?

The Clinton Community Library will be putting forth a question on the November ballot regarding our operating budget. You may be asking, “What does this mean for me?” To answer, we have put together a list of questions and answers. View the FAQ here. Our Library Director and our Trustees are happy to answer any questions you have or explain any information that might be unclear. Please come in to the library! We want to make sure that everyone has the correct information.

Mid-Hudson Children’s Museum Pass

Mid-Hudson Children's Museum Library Pass
We are pleased to share that we now offer our patrons a pass to the Mid-Hudson Children’s Museum! The Pass allows for free general admission during public hours for the entire family. The Mid-Hudson Children’s Museum defines “family” as up to two adults and all children under 18 years old from one household. Library card AND photo ID must be presented when entering the museum, per the Museum’s rules. The Family Pass may be borrowed during the week for 5 days. Passes must be returned to the Clinton Community Library and handed to a staff member.
A Family Pass may NOT be renewed, and there is a late fee of $5.00 per day, and a fee of $10.00 for a lost membership card. For more information, call the library or stop by the circulation desk!

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.
