The board of directors and library staff want to know what you want from your public library. This survey is aimed at residents in the Town of Olive and others who use the Olive Free Library. We appreciate your feedback!
Parents can get some holiday errands done while kids have a fun day of activities at the library. We will lead the kids in games, crafts, snacks, and a movie. This program is for children ages 6 and up. Space is limited and preregistration by December 17 is required.
Call the library for the title of this elfish movie. Rated PG
There are many hiking opportunities near the library, including the Kenape Brook/Ashokan High Point trail. You can access trail maps, including USGS topographical maps on Ulster County’s REConnect website. Click on Trails and Routes and check the boxes for trail heads and hiking trails and the trails will appear in red.
For those who like to explore the woods without a trail, you can also get a permit to hike in the Ashokan Reservoir property across from the library by applying to the DEP. There is a link to the application here.
Please take safety precautions before heading into the woods. Get hiking safety tips here.
