The Poestenkill Library

Access information. Discover ideas. Enjoy reading.


Storytime every Friday.  The library opens at 10AM, story time starts at 10:15.

This week, with Poestenkill Elementary School closed this Friday, please feel free to bring older siblings along. Depending on the weather, we will be on the library porch if it’s 50 or above. In the Town hall if it’s below 50. If outside we will play an organized game of “the ground is lava”, OR do a small sensory activity(shaving cream and playdoh) after the story.



Friday Storytime


Storytime is back!  Join Miss Erin on Friday mornings at 10:15 for a fun filled storytime.  While the weather allows, we will be outside on the library porch so wear warm clothes and bring a blanket.
