There are 24 libraries in Dutchess County. Each is as unique as the community they serve. While the county libraries are wonderfully diverse they are united in their passion to provide exceptional library service. We are all part of the Mid-Hudson Library System, a cooperative public library system. The Mid-Hudson Library System serves Columbia, Dutchess, Greene, Putnam, and Ulster counties and has 66 member libraries.

If you have a library card from any of the 66 libraries in our system, you can use it at any Dutchess County library. You can also return items to any library regardless of where you checked them out. We hope you’ll explore this website and your local library to see all the rich resources that are available.
