The Library

The Poestenkill LibraryNestled in the rural, rolling countryside of Rensselaer County is the town of Poestenkill, NY (population 4054). Within its village is the charming home of the Poestenkill Library. Here you will find indivduals and families searching for just the right book to use for research or to read for pleasure. They may be looking for an audio book or a music cd, a good movie to watch or just surfing the net. You may find a parent reading to their child in the bright, new children’s room; a patron looking at a magazine upstairs in the reading nook; or in fair weather, a neighbor in the rocking chair on the front porch. We invite you to visit and share the experience.
