Market Day – Saturday, September 21

bakesaleThe library lawn will be filled with tables and shoppers from 9am to 1pm on Saturday, September 21. The Friends of Poestenkill Library are busy baking delicious goodies, collecting puzzles, gently-used jewelry/purses/scarves, and attic treasures. People are gathering themed items for baskets to be raffled. On Saturday, all the boxes of books donated since May will brought out of the shed and sold for $4.00 per bag (you can bring your own bag) and the grill will be fired up for the hot dogs. The Bake Sale sets up shop on the front porch and the Attic Treasures group will unwrap boxes of donated collectibles and fill up many tables with bargains for all. There have been great puzzles donated for the sale. untitled
We are also looking for extra hands to help clean up at the end of the day (1pm). If you can help out, please call the library at 283-3721 to sign up. Thank you!
