The Friends of the Poestenkill Library Annual Meeting – Monday, October 17th at 7pm.

It is time for The Friends of the Poestenkill Library to hold their Annual Meeting. Officers for the upcoming year will be elected – we do have a slate of officers to present so do worry about being drafted for a position! There will also be discussion about bylaws and policies. Plans will be made for the annual “Holiday Lights Appeal” and the February event of “Chocolate Friendzy,” back by popular demand!

Please join us at the library on Monday, October 17th for this important annual meeting. If you are not able to attend and would like to help out with either of these programs, please let current President Judy Grattan or President-elect Marcia Hopple know at

Hope to see you on Monday at 7pm at the library!!

Closed – Monday, October 10th

The library will be closed on Monday for the Columbus Day holiday. It will be open on Saturday from 10-1 so you can get everything you need for the weekend! Don’t forget you can borrow ebooks, and other online materials such as magazines, audiobooks, and videos from Overdrive, even when the library is closed. Check out the link to the right.

September is “Get A Library Card” Month!!! – Do you have a card?

library-cardStop in and let the wonderful staff at Poestenkill Library process a new library card for you! It only takes a few minutes to fill out the registration card and a few minutes more for the staff to enter the card into our system. Then you will have a card that allows you access to every public library in Albany & Rensselaer County! You can reserve books online, download ebooks, audiobooks, and videos. And it’s good for your budget as there won’t be a need to keep buying new books! Just check them out from the library. If you can’t find something on the shelf at Poestenkill Library, we will try to get it for you from another library and it will be sent to Poestenkill Library for you to pick up! There’s a lot of great things in that little card!

Closed – Monday, September 5th

The library will be closed on Monday in observance of Labor Day. We will be open on Saturday so you can stock up for your holiday weekend! (Or summer reading books for school if you haven’t done that yet!).
