The Mechanicville District Public Library is a member of the Southern Adirondack Library System (SALS) which encompasses Warren, Washington, Hamilton and Saratoga Counties.

SALS, in conjuction with the Mohawk Valley Library Association (MVLS) provides a computerized catalog of all the holdings of the member libraries of the two systems.

Patrons of the Mechanicville District Public Library thereby have free access to more than 2,000,000 books, videos, audiobooks, periodicals and other materials through interlibrary loan.


The Mechanicville Library has several programs for children, families and adults. Below you will find a list of some of our activities. We are constantly adding more programs, so keep an eye out for our Library Newsletter to find out about upcoming events.
