The Poestenkill Library

Access information. Discover ideas. Enjoy reading.

Have you sent back your Friends membership?

The Friends of Poestenkill Library do great things for the library. They have purchased book collections, they fund the program coordinator, cover the cost of the weekly cleaning of the library, and many, many more things. The two annual Market Days are favorites among the community. The Holiday Lights Appeal in the winter raises money for the library operating costs and makes the library glow on those cold winter evenings. They are always looking for new members, new helpers, and new ideas.
May was membership month and letters went out inviting our friends to become Friends! If you haven’t renewed your annual membership or if you want to join the Friends, there is still time. You can put the forms in the mail or drop them off at the library.

Wonderful Market Day!

It was a beautiful day and the Friends of Poestenkill Library are very pleased with the results of Market Day. People filled the lawn at the library, searching the tables for good bargains, filling their bags with books, or just chatting with friends they hadn’t seen during the endless winter! Thank you for your support!

Spring Market Day – May 2nd!

The Friends of Poestenkill Library are busy gathering collectibles, gently-used handbags, jewelry & scarves, and making lists of helpers and bakers for the Spring Market Day. This great event always brings in large crowds as it is one of the first local events of Spring.

From 9am to 1pm, the lawn at the library will be covered in tables filled with basket raffles, books, attic treasures, plants, gently-used handbags, jewelry & scarves, and lots of people! The library porch is the site of the delicious baked goods and coffee.

New library automation system – Sierra – March 31st

The new automation system will “Go Live” on Tuesday, March 31. In the meantime, you will experience delays in receiving your holds due to the transitions between systems. Please be patient with us. Continue to place holds for items you would like to borrow. If there is an item you need immediately from another library, we can help determine the closest library that has it available if you want to go to the library to pick it up.

We apologize for any inconvenience you may experience over the next week or so, but it will definitely be worth it! The new system is great and very user-friendly, both for patrons and staff. All your information will just roll over to the new system so you don’t need to do anything to be able your use your card.
