Join Rondout Valley Organics

The library is now a drop off location for Rondout Valley Organics. This is a group of local farms in the Rondout Valley who produce a variety of organic foods and food products. The first day you can pick up your food will be Friday, April 22 during normal library hours. If you cannot make it in during that time, the food will stay in an insulated cooler with plenty of ice and you can pick it up Saturday, 10-4.

You must become a member and add money to your account to have food delivered. Membership is $50 per year. Please note that you can start your account with as little as $50 in addition to your membership. Here is a link to the website. The website is “Farm to City” a site that handles the online commerce part for Rondout Valley Organics. There will be much, much more produce to choose from during the growing season.

Hiking Near the Library

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.
