The Poestenkill Library

Access information. Discover ideas. Enjoy reading.

Last week to get your reading raffle tickets in!!!

I know there have been a lot of readers this summer! I can tell because there are a lot of spaces empty on the shelves! Make sure you get to the library this week and get raffle tickets for your hours read. Let’s make those containers overflow with raffle tickets! Someone at each level – children, teens, and adults – will win new Kindle Fires!

The summer reading program ends on Friday, August 26! Raffle tickets will not be accepted after 1pm that day. The drawing will be held the following Thursday and winners will be contacted immediately.

Oh No! We have to postpone Tie Dye again! The weather is not cooperating with us!

I am so sorry to have to do this again but it is always SAFETY FIRST! We are going to postpone the Tie Dye event to July 28th. Last week turned out to be humid but not rainy. It doesn’t look like we are going to be so lucky this week.

We are going to put together some added attractions to Tie Dye Night on the 28th to make up for all this canceling! Stay tuned for announcements!

Again, my apologies. Try as I might, I can’t control everything!!!

Tie Dye Night rescheduled to July 14th! Summer Reading still starts on the 7th!

12:30pm – Due to the current weather forecast, we are rescheduling the Tie Dye Night to July 14th. This gives us enough time to notify everyone, rather than scrambling tomorrow afternoon to get in touch with everyone that has registered. We would rather have a fun-filled evening than worry about getting everything done before a storm comes in, or hope that one passes by quickly. I hope that everyone who has signed up can join us on the 14th!

Don’t forget – Summer Reading starts on the 7th regardless of the weather!! Drop off your reading registration at the library. Forms are available using the links in the article below this one or you can fill one out at the library. I’ll let you in on a little secret – the grand prize at all three levels is a Kindle Fire!! Each level will be in the running for a grand prize. Read often, and make sure you record how long you read so you can earn raffle tickets for the drawing for the Kindle Fire.

I apologize for any inconvenience the rescheduling of Tie Dye Night may cause your family. We thought we should err on the side of caution.
