Library Labs to begin January 31!

The library will kick off a series of mini science labs on Wednesday, January 31 at 6pm. The first one ” The Science of Bubbles” is for students in grades 2 and up. Please pre-register for this event by stopping in or calling the library at 518-283-3721. Watch this site and our Facebook page for future Library Labs.

We are so fortunate to have two retired teachers as part of the staff at the library. Philomena Valente was a science teacher at Algonquin Middle School; she will be presenting the Library Labs. Lianne Thompson was a teacher at Poestenkill Elementary School and she has put together the Reading Olympics program which started on January 3rd. Hooray for teachers!

Library is closed today, 1/15, due to furnace issues

I apologize for the last minute notice and any inconvenience this may cause. It is too cold inside the library to open. We will get it fixed and be ready to open at 1pm tomorrow.
