NEW! Welcome to our eWorld...

If you click on the link to the right for the MVLS Web Catalog, you may notice a new tab option on the far right. eContent. Well, click it! We now have the ability to digitally download eAudiobooks to your computer or compatible devices (like cell phones or mp3 players). AND for all you luck patrons who received eReaders (of any kind) for Christmas, you can download eBooks right to your device. It's magic, I tell you!

It is very user friendly and self-explanatory, but you know you can come in and visit with me - no worries, we'll work it out together!

Well, we're finally making the BIG move! Fair warning, there may be a little chaos in the week ahead, but it will definitely be worth it come the middle of March. The first big change is the new hours...Mondays and Wednesdays 3:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m., Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays 9:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. I'm such a creature of habit even this little change is throwing me off! In addition, starting Monday, March 7th you will find the Fort Hunter Free Library opened at the new location - 167 Fort Hunter Road, Amsterdam, NY. It is housed in what was once the Town of Florida Justice Court - you'll find me. Our phone number will remain 518)829-7248, so please call if you need directions. As with anything, though there have been some "roadblocks" we are plowing forward and I'm really excited about how the new space is shaping up. Watch for upcoming photos...Hope to see you there!
