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.
Please note that Library Board Meetings will now occur on the first Wednesday of every month.
The Friends of Blodgett Library are proud to announce the Blodgett Basement Bookstore has arrived. Our book sale room has a new name and new look. Come down and see what we have on our shelves!
The Friends of Blodgett Library meet the second Wednesday of every month. If you are interested in joining and volunteering please come in and meet our friends.
Every Saturday from 12- 4pm & Monday 2:30- 6:30pm we have a Teen Tech on hand to assist you with any of your electronics questions. Bring your devices and our Tech will be happy to assist you.
