Blodgett Library is proud to announce we have adopted a unit of soldiers currently serving in the military. During the month of May we will be collecting items to send. The Platoon Commander has sent a wishlist:

  • Coffee, healthy snacks (nuts, granola bars)
  • Personal care items (shampoo, body soap, deodorant, shaving cream, razors)
  • Clothing items (Packs of t-shirts, shower shoes, flip flops)

Please bring your donations into the library and support our troops!

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.
