Bradford Graves Sculpture

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.

Mohonk Preserve – Passes available to Library patrons

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.

Meet Libby – Our New e-Reader App!

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.

Children’s Room Project

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.
