The Poestenkill Library

Access information. Discover ideas. Enjoy reading.

Celebrate July 4th in Poestenkill – 9:30am

Join the fun on the Poestenkill Town Green at the Poestenkill Library. The Poestenkill Jam Group will provide music from the porch of the library and the Friends of Poestenkill Library will provide lemonade and watermelon. The star of the annual event is always the gigantic American flag, handsewn in 1863 by a Poestenkill resident.  In honor of the age of the flag, traditional games are played – one of the most fun is the watermelon seed “ejection” contest. See who will “eject” their watermelon seeds the farthest this year!

Bring a lawn chair or blanket.

The library will be closed for business on July 4th.
