Take Your Child to the Library Day – Saturday, February 1st

imagesHave you been to the library lately? Saturday, February 1st would be a great day to visit! It is National Take Your Child to the Library Day! Come see the new books, DVDs, and music CDs we have for children and adults! We would love to see our old friends and make new friends at the Poestenkill Library! The library is open from 10am to 1pm on Saturdays.

Library closed today!

I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We need to keep everyone safe and off these slippery roads. We should be open tomorrow! Don’t forget you can order books from home (see search catalog to the right of this posting) and you can download ebooks, audiobooks, and even some movies (limited selection) through Overdrive. And now magazines are being offered – see details below. Kids can use Tumble Books to read picture books and play games. All from the comfort of home!! I hope you get a chance to try it out!

Ongoing Book Sale – Great Titles & Bargains!

We have had some great books donated in the past month. I think people were cleaning out before the holidays! Stop in and check out the sale shelves in the front entryway. Books, audiobooks, VHS, & DVDs are just 50 cents each. Today we added two shelving units full of pocket-sized paperbacks. The books on those shelves are 25 cents each. In addition, we always have a container full of free magazines!

We appreciate the items that have been donated to us. We add a few of them to the library’s collection, we sell some online at, and the rest are used for book sales. It is an important source of revenue for the library.imagesCAHEQYCG
