Have you ever wanted to rent a book but did not feel like going to the library? I remember renting books in college, and it was so simple and most importantly, free.

On my adventures, I have noticed the little libraries throughout the Hudson Valley. Have you noticed them before? They look somewhat like a cabinet with a clear piece of glass in front and a door to open and grab books of your choice. It was quite fun to randomly choose a book to read from this little library. When I reached my hand in, I pulled out a book about astrology and angels (I was excited, ha-ha).

Let's check out where in the Hudson Valley that you can visit one of these libraries.
