The Poestenkill Library

Access information. Discover ideas. Enjoy reading.

Time to bring your summer reading records in!

The summer reading program ends on Saturday, 8/17. You have until the following Saturday to bring in your record and receive raffle tickets towards the grand prize of a camera. I can tell you that as of this post, at 7:45 pm on 8/15, there are no tickets in the buckets! Your chances of winning a prize are very high until the buckets fill up!! There will be a grand prize awarded at each level – children, teen, & adult.

Eric Carle Picture Book Museum bus trip has been cancelled.

We are sorry to say that we did not have enough interest to fill the bus to go to the museum. We will try again at another time of the year to see if that sparks more interest.

August at the Poestenkill Library

The summer fun continues at the library in August!

We have planned a bus trip to the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in Amherst, Massachusetts! A Yankee Trails bus will leave the library at 8:30 am on Thursday, August 22 and return by 5:00. The cost is $15 per adult and $10 per child. Pre-registration is required and payment must be made at the time of registration. Checks should be made payable to the Poestenkill Library. The Friends of Poestenkill Library will cover all admission fees to the museum. Participants should bring a lunch and drinks. This trip is recommended for school-age children and families. Car seats are not permitted on the bus. Registration is required by August 10th. This will be a great trip to a very fun museum!

Other Events in August!

August 5, 6:30-7:30: Cookbook Book Club for AdultsDesserts. Bring a dessert that you have never made before and the cookbook you used for the recipe.

August 14, 6:30-7:30pm: LEGO Club – Surprise Challenge!

Summer Reading Program ends on August 17! You shouldn’t stop reading for the summer, but you can stop tracking it and then get all your records into the library for your raffle tickets to win a camera.

Other Things to Know:
Algonquin Middle School students – we still have a great selection of books from the required reading list! Stop in and pick out one of the great titles the teachers have selected.

The library is air-conditioned and is a great place to spend some time during this hot summer. We have board games upstairs and sometimes even a puzzle to complete. We are receiving new books and DVDs weekly. If we do not have the item you are looking for, we can get it for you from one of the other 28 libraries in the Upper Hudson Library System.

Happy August!!

Tie Dye is canceled for tonight due to the weather. It is rescheduled for 7/18 @ 6:30!

Due to the likelihood of rain & more, we are rescheduling Tie Dye Night to next Thursday, July 18. This is one event we can’t bring indoors! I apologize for any disappointment or inconvenience the date change may cause.
Margie Morris, Director
