Friday, June 22nd will be the last regularly scheduled preschool story hour for a while. Miss Dona is taking a much deserved summer break but she will be back with wonderful new ideas and stories in the fall. Please watch this site, our Facebook page (have you liked us yet?), and The Advertiser for other summer family programs.
Don’t forget to sign up for the Summer Reading program. It is for kids, teens, and adults. Online registration will open on July 5th. There will be a summer reading “tab” on this page. Win prizes for reading this summer!
We hope to see you in the library during the summer. We are still open on Friday mornings even if Miss Dona isn’t here! We are getting great new books for all ages almost every day. Stop in and check out the newest titles.

The Friends of Poestenkill Library Spring Market Day is just around the corner. Join the fun and find great bargains on Saturday, May 18th from 9am to 1pm. This popular event is held on the lawn of the library. The tables will be filled with attic treasures, plants, baked goods, gently-used purses, scarves, and jewelry, and a fresh selection of books. This winter we sent the leftover books from prior book sales to Better World books and now there is a whole new selection to choose from. The books are $4.00 per bag. You may bring your own bag. The rain date (hopefully not to be needed) is Sunday, May 19th.
In addition, there will be chili and hot dogs for sale at lunch time. Something new for the kids will be a jewelry making table and there will also be a fun place to take photos with friends and family.
We hope to see you at this great community event!
