This November, we welcome some changes to our public programs. Starting this month, in response to parent preferences, the time of our popular Story Hour with Miss Linda has changed to 10:30 a.m. Our Open Mic Night has been changed to a Sunday evening to make the program more accessible to families in our community. Please come check out these fun programs -- a complete calendar of events for November can be found below. 

We have also established a new service -- a Coupon Exchange! Bring coupons you can't use to the library, and browse the Coupon Exchange for coupons you can use. The more people who participate, the better the coupon selection -- and the more money each can save! We are also seeking volunteers to help clip and sort coupons. Please contact the library for more information. 

As always, we welcome your suggestions and comments! Give us a call at 518-732-0879 or send an email to
