Thanks to the Friends of the Chatham Library, our patrons can checkout library passes offering free or reduced admission to a wide variety of nearby museums and historic sites. The Library now has a pass that admits six people to Olana, the historic home of painter Frederick Church. PLEASE NOTE: They are currently on winter hours for house tours, Friday-Sunday, 11am-3pm. Admission to the main house at Olana is by guided tour only. Tours of the main house at Olana are very popular, so reservations are highly recommended. Reservations can be made by clicking on the Book a Tour button on their website or calling (518) 828-0135 during business hours. Please arrive 30 minutes before the tour starts. Unclaimed tickets will be made available to other visitors on site and waiting. All hours and fees are subject to change.
Passes are available on a first-come basis, cannot be reserved, circulate for three days, and are limited to one pass per family at a time.

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.
