Check out Encore!

Encore is the new way to search for materials in the Poughkeepsie Public Library District (and every other library within the Mid-Hudson Library System too!).  Encore allows users to search millions of book, movie, e-book and audiobook titles available through the Mid-Hudson Library System, as well as downloadable articles from over 7,000 magazine and journals.  Another new feature of Encore is the ability to check out e-books and audiobooks within the library catalog, instead of leaving the catalog and going to the Overdrive website. And like with the old catalog, you can continue to manage your holds and renewals online by logging into your account. If you would like training on how to get the most out of this great new resource, visit us for one-on-one help!

Check out the new catalog here.
