2016 Holidays Lights Appeal – halfway to our goal!

The Friends of Poestenkill Library are pleased to announce that, as of 12/12/16, they are at 53% of their goal of $7,000! That is a great response from the wonderful patrons and Friends of the library! Thank you for the generous donations. The Holiday Lights Appeal runs through the end of December so there is still plenty of time if you haven’t made your donation yet. You can also donate online using the Holiday Lights link on the right side of the website. A donation to the Holiday Lights Appeal is a nice gift to honor a friend, family member, or teacher, and a thoughtful way to remember someone special from your life.

Thank you to all the wonderful people who have donated to the 2016 Friends’ Holiday Lights Appeal.

The Friends of the Poestenkill Library Annual Meeting – Monday, October 17th at 7pm.

It is time for The Friends of the Poestenkill Library to hold their Annual Meeting. Officers for the upcoming year will be elected – we do have a slate of officers to present so do worry about being drafted for a position! There will also be discussion about bylaws and policies. Plans will be made for the annual “Holiday Lights Appeal” and the February event of “Chocolate Friendzy,” back by popular demand!

Please join us at the library on Monday, October 17th for this important annual meeting. If you are not able to attend and would like to help out with either of these programs, please let current President Judy Grattan or President-elect Marcia Hopple know at

Hope to see you on Monday at 7pm at the library!!
