Books, Movies and More

The Highland Public Library provides access to many books and digital entertainment collections. A library card is required to check out all catalog materials.

The Library’s Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC) allows patrons to search for all materials available from the Highland Public Library and the collections of the entire Mid-Hudson Library System, including books, large print, magazines, video cassettes, DVDs, music CDs, CD-ROMs and more! Patrons can also view their library account, renew items, and place or cancel their material requests using their online account or library app.
