Friends of Poestenkill Library meeting 3/11/13 @ 7pm

The Friends of Poestenkill Library invite you to attend a meeting on Monday, March 11th at 7pm at the library. They will be electing officers and making plans for the Spring Market Day in May. The meeting is open to all. The Friends are looking for new members and helpers for events.

Library closed on Saturday, March 9th

The library will be closed for business on Saturday so we can paint and have new carpeting installed. We have many wonderful volunteers coming to pack up books, move shelves, tear up old carpeting, prep the walls and ceiling for painting and, of course, actually paint the walls & ceiling. The new carpet will be installed on Sunday morning and then we will have another crew coming in to put the shelves back and refill the shelves. Stop in next week to see what we have done!

Feeling Lucky? Win an iPad!

February 1 is the first day of “Love Your Library” month. It is also the first day to buy a raffle ticket to win a new white Apple iPad 16GB wi-fi. Raffle tickets cost $5.00 each and will be sold at the library through March 16th. You must be 18 or older to purchase a ticket. The drawing will take place on St. Patrick’s Day. Feeling lucky?

Hug the Library! They really love us!

handsaroundlibrary2On a chilly, sunny Saturday afternoon more than 50 Poestenkill Library lovers bundled up and gathered outside to “hug” the library, in celebration of Love Your Library month. It was a multigenerational event and it was wonderfully planned by LouAnne Lundgren, Library Board President. (LouAnne had heard about an event like this during a session at the New York Library Association Annual Conference in Saratoga that she attended this past November.)HandsAroundTheLibrary10
After getting everyone in position, (thank you Mary Lynch!), several amateur photographers took great photos to document this brief, but fun event. Then everyone hustled inside for hot cocoa and delicious heart-shaped cookies and chocolates. It was fun to hear people discuss what it was about the Poestenkill Library that had them standing in the cold, holding hands with strangers, to give the library a hug. It was great to introduce these supportive patrons, staff, trustees, adults and children to each other.
There are many more photos from this event on the library’s Facebook page. You can access them using the icon on the bottom of this page. You do not need a Facebook account to view the photos. If you do have a Facebook account, we hope you will give us your comments. We would love to hear from you!
