What's going on at the Library...
Presents for Participants Returns
The Library is pleased to once again serve as a drop-off point for the Mental Health Association in Ulster County’s Presents for Participants Program (formerly Presents for Patients).  Donations will be distributed to individuals who are currently living in a MHA residence or involved in one of MHA’s community-based programs.  For many it will be the only gift they receive this year. 

New, unwrapped gifts will be accepted at the Library until December 9th.

Gift suggestions include: “something to wear” (large and extra-large items preferred) and “something to do” (greeting cards, envelopes, postage stamps, games, puzzles, playing cards, model kits, books, soaps and deodorants). Candy, packaged cookies and chewing gum are also acceptable. Please, no used items. Gifts should be unwrapped so the Mental Health Association staff can address individual patient needs. Glass containers should be well packaged to ensure against breakage.

Donations can be dropped off during the Library’s curbside or in-Library hours. Click here for our current hours.  Please visit marlborolibrary.org for updates.
Remote Printing Available
We now offer Princh, a wireless printing solution that allows patrons to safely send prints from their mobile devices, laptops or home computers, to the Library for pick-up!
To begin printing from your mobile device, download the free Princh app, from the Apple Store or the Google Play Store. You can also print from your laptop by visiting print.princh.com.

When using this app, you can pay by credit card ahead of time, or pay by cash at the circulation desk when you arrive to pick up your prints.
Chromebook & Hotspot Bundles

Don't forget! We have added four Chromebooks and hotspot bundles to our circulating collection. 

Marlboro Central School District residents, who are over the age of 18, and who have an active Marlboro Free Library card or Sarah Hull Hallock Library card that is in good standing (no outstanding overdue materials or fines on their account) may check out a Chromebook and hotspot bundle for 7 days.
