The Poestenkill Library

Access information. Discover ideas. Enjoy reading.

Market Day is a Great Success!

It was a beautiful day on May 5th and the lawn at the library was filled with tables and customers! Thank you to the wonderful Boy Scouts and their families, and to all the other terrific volunteers who came to set up at 7am! It was amazing to watch the tables set up and filled so quickly. Many of the young men and their families have been helping at Market Day for several years and know the most efficient way to get everything done. Well done!!  And then they returned at 1pm to help put it all away!

Spring Market Day 2011

The Friends of Poestenkill Library are busy gathering collectibles, gently-used accessories, plants, baked goods, and books – everything they want to offer to the community for the Spring Market Day. Delicious baked goods are sold from the library’s front porch. The Town Green (the library lawn) will be covered with tables filled with thousands of books, DVDS, & audio books (fill a bag for $3), collectibles (great deals can be found here), and plants for your garden. At around 11am you will begin to smell the grilled hot dogs and homemade chili – a very yummy lunch! Themed baskets will be raffled.

Please stop in between 9am and 1pm on Saturday, May 5th (rain date 5/6) and join us for this great community event!

Wagging Tales Reading Program

Xander and Tyler read to Maggie

Gwen, Ethan, and Goodie

As you can see by the smiles on the children’s faces, this program is a great success. Every Thursday evening children are signed up for a half hour reading session with either Maggie, the golden retriever, or Goodie, the wire-haired daschund. Each child has their own time (siblings may be included) reading to the dogs, which are registered therapy dogs. There are two sessions per Thursday evening offered.
