The Poestenkill Library

Access information. Discover ideas. Enjoy reading.

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!).

Last week to get your reading raffle tickets in!!!

I know there have been a lot of readers this summer! I can tell because there are a lot of spaces empty on the shelves! Make sure you get to the library this week and get raffle tickets for your hours read. Let’s make those containers overflow with raffle tickets! Someone at each level – children, teens, and adults – will win new Kindle Fires!

The summer reading program ends on Friday, August 26! Raffle tickets will not be accepted after 1pm that day. The drawing will be held the following Thursday and winners will be contacted immediately.
