Friends’ Fall Market Day – Saturday, September 19

The Friends of Poestenkill Library are working hard to gather everything they will need for a successful Market Day on Saturday, September 19, from 9am to 1pm. The thing they need the most are volunteers to help during set up at 7am and take down at 1pm. Just an hour at either (or both) ends of Market Day are such a big help to everyone.
This year’s Market offers delicious baked goods; gently-used purses, scarves, & jewelry; puzzles, puzzles, and more puzzles; and, of course, plenty of books! The books are $5.00 per bag, bring your own bag!! There will be beautiful basket raffles and yummy chili & hot dogs!
Stop in on Saturday, September 19th, and join the fun on the green at the library, find great bargains, and lend a hand if you have an hour or so to spare.
Donations of books, purses, scarves, jewelry, and puzzles are welcome. (There will not be collectibles at this Market so please do not drop those items off at the library.)

EVERY HERO HAS A STORY! That is the theme of this summer’s Reading Program!
The Summer Reading program was kicked off on Thursday evening with the annual Tie-Dye Night! The weather was beautiful as more than 45 people, from preschoolers to senior citizens, tie-dyed shirts, socks, shorts, and little baby Onesies on the lawn at the library.
