Welcome to the Sarah Hull Hallock Free Library

Welcome to the Sarah Hull Hallock Free Library in Milton, New York.  Our goal at the Milton Library is to help the community to navigate our small but very personalized library.  We offer the latest in books, DVDs, CDs, and magazines, and we specialize in helping you to easily access them.  If we don’t have what you’re looking for, we can probably get it for you through the Mid Hudson Library System.  Our friendly, knowledgeable staff is ready to help you to access this system, our computers and on-line information.   We offer programs for children, teens and adults – check out our calendar!  Come in and spend some time with us, whether in our building or virtually through our web site.  Let us help you to locate information and entertainment for yourself and your family.

eBooks for Kids!

The library has expanded services with a new digital collection website experience just for kids. The main MHLS Digital Download Collection now has a separate site to provide a safe and easy browsing experience for kids.

Libraries recognize the need to provide a safe environment for kids to browse library materials. Just as the children’s section of the physical library has its own place, the same experience is now available in the digital collection for kids eBooks and audiobooks. Browsing can be done by subject, reading level or interest level. Check out the Kid’s eReading Room.
