The Periwinkle Fund was started by an anonymous grandparent with a desire to help improve the children’s library. Many grandparents bring their grandchildren to the Stone Ridge Library. This year there are several building projects planned to improve the children’s area including a new all-purpose room, back porch, and kitchenette and restroom.
Visitors to the Stone Ridge Library will now be greeted by a beautiful limestone sculpture that has been installed amongst the plantings that line the bluestone walkway at the entrance to the 1798 stone building. The sculpture, titled Magnus I, was created in 1995 by Bradford Graves, and was recently donated by Verna Gillis in memory of her late husband.
Every Friday at 10am
We are starting a Mahjong group, beginners are welcome. Register on line on the calendar or at the Circulation Desk in the Library, or just walk in. We will be meeting every Friday at 10am.
Thanks to the generosity of Mohonk Preserve, the Library will have four passes available for Library patrons age 18 and older whose record is in good standing, to enjoy 70 miles of hiking, biking and climbing trails and carriage roads. Passes can be checked out for three days and returned at the Circulation Desk.
Introducing a new, more user-friendly mobile app from Overdrive called Libby!
Libby is the new app to use on your phones or (most) tablets when downloading e-books and audiobooks. Designed for ease of use, Libby eliminates the need for format selection (uses OverDrive Read and OverDrive Listen) and contains new features that make the digital library fresh and fun.
The Children’s Room Project is designed to renovate and enlarge the Children’s Room at the back of the Library. Staying within the existing footprint, it will utilize existing cold storage space between the 1798 and 1811 buildings, resulting in an expanded program room and adding a small kitchenette and an ADA-compliant restroom.

The Stone Ridge Library Knitters meet every Saturday morning from 10am – 12noon. All ages and experience levels can jo in us and drop-in knitters are also welcome. We each bring our own supplies and do our own work, but one of the best things about us is that whatever obstacle or confusion you might encounter, you’re likely to receive as much comment and advice as you need to get where you’re going with a project.
