Donors Decorate Poestenkill Library

The Friends of the Poestenkill Library invite you to give a year-end gift that helps the Library while honoring or remembering someone special. Each holiday season we “light up the library” with colorful strings of lights representing the many gifts that donors send. Often the gifts are tributes to friends or family, who receive notices from the Friends of the Library that someone has given in their honor. All the donations allow the Library to buy new books and offer special programs during the year.

Donors of $100 are recognized with a candle, and donors of $75 are recognized with a wreath, in one of the Library windows. Altogether, the lights, candles and wreaths turn the Library building into a beautiful symbol of the generosity of the season!

To be part of the Holiday Lights appeal, please stop in at the Library or call at 283-3721 to get a brochure with gift form. You are also welcome to mail a check, payable to Friends of the Poestenkill Library, to PO Box 305, Poestenkill, NY, 12140. Include a name and address if you want us to notify someone you are honoring. We also offer on line secure giving through PayPal at Thank you!

French Film

“Sans Famille”-Saturday, January 18, 2020, 1pm, Troy Public Library, 100 Second Street, Troy, NY, free, presented by La Fédération Franco-Américaine du New York. Young Rémi, a foundling, lives on the farm run by his impoverished foster parents. When their money runs out, unbeknown to his foster-mother, Rémi is sold by his hard-hearted foster father to an old street performer named Vitalis. Vitalis was once a famous opera singer, but became destitute after a tragic love affair. Ever since that time he has been a traveling showman, touring the country with three dogs and a monkey. Rémi is given a warm welcome by the strange troupe, and actually learns how to read and write. (Source-IMDb) For additional information, call the Troy Public Library at 518-274-7071.
