About the Library:

There has been a library in the hamlet of Milton since 1888. The current library building was constructed in 1924. The library was expanded in 1990 with the addition of the Hope Perkins Featherstone Annex. The Annex was designed by architect Frank Taylor to be an exact duplicate of the existing structure. The addition of the Annex has allowed the library to expand its collections and provide a large “community room” for public use.

As an essential and integral part of the community, the Sarah Hull Hallock Free Library inspires lifelong learning, advances knowledge, encourages creative expression, and offers opportunities to explore new experiences and ideas. SHHFL supports the residents of and visitors to the Hudson Valley, the Town of Marlborough and its hamlets, by providing access to information, education, and recreation.
