The Poestenkill Library

Access information. Discover ideas. Enjoy reading.

Summer Reading starts on July 6th! Lots of great activities scheduled!

EVERY HERO HAS A STORY! That is the theme of this summer’s Reading Program!
The Summer Reading program was kicked off on Thursday evening with the annual Tie-Dye Night! The weather was beautiful as more than 45 people, from preschoolers to senior citizens, tie-dyed shirts, socks, shorts, and little baby Onesies on the lawn at the library.

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!
