Saturday is Fall Market Day!!! 9am to 1pm

The Friends of Poestenkill Library are working hard to get things ready for Saturday’s big event! It looks like the weather will be cooperative, too! There are beautiful raffle baskets arriving at the library and you can buy a ticket for $1 each from now through Market Day. The winning tickets will be drawn on Saturday. The delicious Bake Sale can always use more baked goods and the Attic Treasures would like some nice, good quality items to sell. Lots and lots of puzzles will be sold – they are a great thing to do over the winter months! Books, CDs, and DVDs are $5.00 per bag, bring your own bag! Great selection to choose from. And as always, more hands are needed to help set up at 7am and take it all down at 1pm. We hope to see you on Saturday!
