Tutors are available from 2-9 pm. You can also use their drop-off reviews, practice quizzes, video lessons, and The Princeton Review® SAT®/ACT® Essentials for self-study, 24/7


Nurture your creative side with 1,000+ video classes in painting, knitting, crafting, sewing & more!  All for free with your library card!

Art Exhibition - IF ONLY

The Olive Free Library Association is very pleased to present IF ONLY, an exhibition of works by five regional artists who incorporate feminist issues in their artworks.  The show is curated by Nathalie Andrews and will run from September 26 through November 7, 2020, with the opening on Saturday, September 26 from 2 – 4 pm.

Antiracist Tool Kit

Our colleagues at the Poughkeepsie Public Library District have created a comprehensive Antiracist Starter Kit for kids, teens, adults, parents, and educators.
Many of the suggested titles are available with no wait through our online services, such as Hoopla, Kanopy, and certain titles on Overdrive. The Mid-Hudson Library System has curated a list on Overdrive titled, "Injustice Anywhere is a Threat to Justice Everywhere."
Thank you to our colleagues for putting together such well-organized and thorough resource guides and collections.
