Light Up the Poestenkill Library

The Friends of the Poestenkill Library invite you to give a monetary holiday gift that will help the Library while honoring or remembering someone special. Each December, during our Holiday Lights Annual Appeal, we “Light up the Library” with strings of colorful lights representing the generous gifts received from donors. Often the gifts are tributes to friends or family who receive notices from the Library that someone has given in their honor. These donations allow the Library to expand their collection, enhance their services, and offer special programs throughout the year. Donors of $100 are recognized with a candle, and donors of $75 are recognized with a wreath, in one of the Library’s many windows. Together, the lights, wreaths and candles turn the Library into a beautiful symbol of the generosity of the season. 

To be part of the Holiday Lights appeal, please stop by the Library or call 518-283-3721 to request a brochure with a gift form. You are also welcome to mail a check, payable to Friends of the Poestenkill Library, to PO Box 305, Poestenkill, NY 12140. If you are giving your holiday gift in someone’s honor, please provide the name and address of whom you would like us to notify. All expenses of the appeal are paid for by the Friends so your entire gift benefits the Library. Please help us give the Library a great start for 2023!
