Shopping on Amazon can benefit the library! Throughout the year, but especially during the holiday shopping season, shop through Amazon Smile and choose Poestenkill Library to receive .05% of your purchases. It may seem like a small amount but it adds up when there are a lot of purchases by everyone who chose the library!

The 19th Annual Holiday Lights Appeal, sponsored by the Friends of Poestenkill Library, has started! The brochures have been mailed out. In addition, you are able to donate via PayPal directly through this site or print off a copy of the brochure. The Appeal is a great way to give a gift to that person who has everything, or to honor a favorite teacher. Many of the donations are received in memory of a loved one. The results of the donations show up as a beautifully decorated library the entire community can enjoy.

Don’t forget we have cake pans for you to borrow! Many, many cake pans in wonderful shapes & sizes! Explore our collection from the listing on this page! We have seasonal shapes!

Seasons Greetings to all our library friends & families!
