Spring Market Day – May 18th

Spring Market Day 2011

Spring Market Day 2011

The Friends of Poestenkill Library Spring Market Day is just around the corner. Join the fun and find great bargains on Saturday, May 18th from 9am to 1pm. This popular event is held on the lawn of the library. The tables will be filled with attic treasures, plants, baked goods, gently-used purses, scarves, and jewelry, and a fresh selection of books. This winter we sent the leftover books from prior book sales to Better World books and now there is a whole new selection to choose from. The books are $4.00 per bag. You may bring your own bag. The rain date (hopefully not to be needed) is Sunday, May 19th.

In addition, there will be chili and hot dogs for sale at lunch time. Something new for the kids will be a jewelry making table and there will also be a fun place to take photos with friends and family.

We hope to see you at this great community event!

This very popular program from last spring is back. Sign a child up to read to licensed therapy dogs on Thursday evenings at the library. Maggie, a golden retriever, and Goodie, a wire-haired daschund, take turns coming to the library on Thursday evenings from 7-8pm to listen to the wonderful stories the children read to them. There are two 1/2 hour sessions per evening. A session can be one child or a couple of children from one family. Stop in or call the library to sign up to read to one of these wonderful listeners. You can choose a date but we cannot guarantee which dog will be available.

Congratulations!

Lori Johnson is the winner of the iPad. The drawing was just held at the library with Dominic Jacangelo pulling the winning ticket!
Today is definitely a lucky day for Lori!
