ORDER

The Mid-Hudson Library System procedure for holds is up and running again so we will no longer be accepting requests for items via email.

SUMMER READING FOR KIDS

Summertime means a chance to explore new books and e-books, learn new skills, and check out resources, programs and activities through your Library. It’s the perfect time for students of all ages to see what their local library has to offer!

We did it!

An enormous and heartfelt thank you from the SRL Foundation to our amazing Library community for making Hudson Valley Gives a big success. Together we raised more than $20,000 for the Library!  Your overwhelming generosity helped us to double our goal of $10,000.

One Story Only

by Mary Fairchild

Robert Graves (1895–1985) is perhaps best known for his historical novels I, Claudius and Claudius the God. Some of us of a certain age will remember the wonderful treatment those two got on PBS in the 1970s, with Derek Jacobi in the title role.*

Wait a minute! HOW MUCH does that hold weigh???

In the libraries of yore—and I mean yore—literature and other offerings were written on cuneiform tablets like the one pictured here.

MANGO

The Frisson of Rightness

Let us consider two sonnets. First, Shakespeare’s seventy-third:

That time of year thou mayst in me behold
When yellow leaves, or none, or few, do hang
Upon those boughs which shake against the cold,
Bare ruin’d choirs, where late the sweet birds sang.

Light and Dark

Sitting by myself, and thinking about the prospect of a month or two more of sitting by myself, it’s a good time for quiet reflection. So, here’s a little meditation on Robert Frost, who is surely the most American of all the American poets.

Dear Stone Ridge Library Patrons and Friends:

We hope that you are safe and well at home and wanted to reach out to make sure that everyone knows how to access our electronic resources while the library is closed.

We also want to request that you NOT return borrowed materials at this time, as staff has been directed to stay at home per local health officials’ instructions.
