Get a Digital Library Card

A physical library card will give you access to everything the library and the Mid-Hudson library system have to offer – both digital resources and physical books + materials.  If you currently have a physical Stone Ridge Library card, you do not need a digital card.

A digital library membership will only give you access to our online resources.

If you are not a library member, you can either come in-person to get a physical card, or register online for a digital library membership.

To get a digital library membership: Fill out the form and within 1-2 business days you will receive an email with your library card number and temporary PIN.

This card can be used to access all of our e-content! E-books, downloadable audiobooks, streaming videos; databases, all available!

When you register for a DIGITAL membership, a physical card will be created for you and held at the library’s circulation desk. You will need this card if you want to check out any physical items or visit other libraries in the MHLS.

Email the Library with the following information to receive your digital card.

  • Your First Name (required)
  • Your Middle Initial
  • Your Last Name (required)
  • Your Email (required)
  • Your Full Mailing Address (required)
  • Your Daytime Phone Number (required)
  • Your Birth Date (required)


To Obtain a Physical Card

Marbletown Residents

As a special district library, Marbletown residents support the library through their taxes. To borrow library materials, we ask that you fill out an application giving us some information about yourself for our computer. You will need to show some form of identification and proof of residency such as a driver’s license, or if you are new to the area, an envelope, such as a phone bill recently mailed to your new address. You will be given a card with your patron number which will give you immediate access to library materials. Cards are available for children over the age of three.
