The Poestenkill Library

Access information. Discover ideas. Enjoy reading.

New resources to investigate! And don’t forget to complete your Census!

There are so many wonderful companies and organizations now offering free access to their sites and resources. I can’t possibly list them all, but here are a couple that may be of interest.

National Emergency Library
The Internet Archive is a nonprofit group which has made over 4 million books available online for free.

Our resources:
Don’t forget Overdrive for ebooks and audiobooks, and both Overdrive & Flipster for a great online magazine selection. I love to read magazines on my iPad – none of those annoying cards fall out! See links to the right.

Very Important
Please fill out your 2020 Census. There are only a few questions and they are not hard! This information is critical as it is used to determine:
– representation at the State & Federal levels
– funding for towns & cities
– school funding
– library funding
– health & safety funding.
The information is confidential. It can be completed online, by phone, or by mail. If you do not complete your census, a census worker will definitely be knocking on the door. Everyone counts and everyone is important!

The wi-fi at the library is on 24/7 and can be easily accessed in the parking lot (also a quiet place if you need a temporary break from being at home) with no password required.

I hope everyone is doing well and staying healthy. I am fairly sure the library will be closed through the end of April. The Friends are already working on a new date for Spring Market Day and planning the Garage Sale Day. That will be a great place to sell all the things you have been cleaning out of every nook and cranny in the house! I will add dates as soon as they are finalized.

Take care. I miss seeing all my library friends!
