Rock some reading this summer!
Story Hour for Grades K – 5th
Story hours will be happening at Tongore Park with the Marbletown camp. If your child is not enrolled in camp you must stay at the park during story hour.
Heartfelt thanks to everyone who pitched in to make this one of the best Library Fairs ever. And special thanks to all the new and returning volunteers who made the event run so smoothly. To see the 2018 pictures click here.

in the Biography Room
The reading selection for June is One Summer: America, 1927 by Bill Bryson. Bryson examines closely the events and personalities of the summer of 1927 when America’s story was one of brawling adventure, reckless optimism and delirious energy.
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.

Second Group starting in May
Monday, June 11, 25
Two separate writers’ groups meet on alternate Mondays at the library, with a maximum of 10 participants in each group. This program is designed for those who are actively writing and publishing work and who want to participate in a structured critical feedback process.
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.
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.
