The Poestenkill Library

Access information. Discover ideas. Enjoy reading.

New service available – document scanning to your email!

Over the past several months, many people have asked if the library had a document scanner. We did not but we discovered that, for a nominal setup fee, we could use the copier which has a scanner module. Patrons are now able to scan to an email address. Please ask for assistance at the circulation desk for this new, free service.

Wonderful, successful Market Day!

Plant Sale – $694
Baked Goods – $632
Books – $628.25
Collectibles – $454
Purses, Jewelry – $228.25
Basket Raffle – $193
Hot Dogs/ Chili – $96.25
50/50 – $113 (The winner donated her share back to the Friends. Thank you Karen!)

Total – $3,038.75

Thank you to everyone who came to Market Day and a huge thanks to the many volunteers who worked from 7am to 1:30pm to set up and take down the sale (not to mention all the time they spent getting ready prior to Market Day). We are always exhausted at the end, but we always have a great time seeing old friends and meeting new ones!
Thank you to everyone who supports the Friends of Poestenkill Library during Market Day.
