The Poestenkill Library

Access information. Discover ideas. Enjoy reading.

All programs are canceled until further notice.

In the interest of public health, Poestenkill Library is canceling all scheduled programs, including Preschool Story Hour & LEGO Club, effective 3/13 and until further notice. Programs will be rescheduled. We do not take this decision lightly. This is a necessary step during an extraordinary time to effectively “flatten the curve” via social distancing and slow the spread of this pandemic. We will be constantly monitoring this ever changing situation.

The Library is open until further notice, although we know that some patrons will be avoiding public places. In addition to the thorough weekly cleaning done at the library, the staff is wiping down handles and surfaces regularly. We also encourage you to use our hand sanitizer as you enter the library.

We can offer to bring requested books out to your car or we can deliver items to at-risk individuals. We also encourage you to access our digital materials (books, movies, magazines) via Overdrive and Flipster.

We know this is disappointing news both for staff and the community. We will keep you updated on any changes via email,, and Facebook. Thank you for your understanding and patience.
