The Poestenkill Library

Access information. Discover ideas. Enjoy reading.

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!

Margie Morris, Director

Digital magazines now available

Upper Hudson Library System is now offering digital magazines via our ebook vendor, OverDrive. Any cardholder at any public library in Albany or Rensselaer Counties can now check out digital magazines.

OverDrive uses the Nook app as its magazine reader, so you will have to set up a Barnes & Noble account and download the Nook app to your mobile device or compatible computer. To read NOOK periodicals, you need one of the following:
• The free NOOK app for Android
•The free NOOK app for iOS (iPhone/iPad/iPod touch)
•The free NOOK app for Windows 8
•A supported NOOK device (like the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 NOOK, NOOK HD or HD+, NOOK Tablet, or NOOK Color).

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
