The Mid-Hudson Library System has entered into a reciprocal lending agreement with the Upper Hudson Library System. This means that many of the eBooks and downloadable audiobooks available through their libraries can now be checked out by Pawling Library patrons. The agreement only covers content on the Overdrive/Libby platform which is not actively checked out by another user. For step by step instructions on how to access the Upper Hudson collection on the Libby app, please read https://www.pawlingfreelibrary.org/wp-content/uploads/2022/04/Libby-RLA-instructions-1.pdf
Overdrive now offers over 3,000 popular magazines available to download with no wait lists, holds, or checkout limits. Using your library card you can download the magazines from the Overdrive website (https://mhls.overdrive.com/) or view them on your mobile device using the Libby App (https://meet.libbyapp.com/). Magazine checkouts do not affect the number of eBooks you can request or check out at once in the Overdrive service. The collection of magazines ranges from the well-known (The New Yorker, The Economist, Vogue, National Geographic) to the highly specialized (Minecraft World, Interweave Crochet, Yachting World, Home Business Magazine). Magazines are even available in other languages.
