Dear Mountain Top Community,

After great consideration and with the advice of trusted community members we have decided to close the Mountain Top Library until further notice. The Mountain Top Library is a gathering place for so many in our community and in an effort to assist in limiting the spread of the Coronavirus we feel this is the best effort we can help make at this time.
The Mid-Hudson Library System will temporarily suspend holds and the delivery system, with a tentative plan to resume delivery services on March 27.
For the time being we are asking patrons to please hold on to any material that they have borrowed from the Mountain Top Library and to not return in the book drop. We will waive any and all overdue fines that accrue, when we are back in operation.
I will be available to answer any questions or concerns you might have. Please feel free to contact me at the library during the week 518-589-5707 or email me at
We hope to reschedule the events and programs that were cancelled due to the pandemic. We please ask for your patience and support as we move forward. We are closely following public health department guidelines and recommendations, and will keep you informed of any changes.
Please take this time to utilize our on-line resources, Overdrive for e-books and audiobooks, as well as Universal Class with over 500 on-line courses to choose from, you can also learn a new language with Mango. All of these are available FREE to you with your library barcode and can be accessed through the links on our website.
We sincerely appreciate your understanding and support. Take care and be well.
Sincerely, Maureen Garcia -Director
And the Mountain Top Library Board of Trustees

eBooks for Kids!

Overdrive 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.
