Notes from Our Director: 

Feel the library love this month at CPL! In celebration of Valentine's Day, stop in during the week of February 8-13 to make a "Blind Date with a Book." Our librarians will select a variety of books for children, teens, and adults, and wrap them in red wrapping paper with a little information about the book on the outside. You won’t know the "identity" of your blind date until you check it out. We'll also have sweet treats to give out that week!

The following week, February 15-19, CPL will host a number of winter break programs for kids and teens. Come create, play, and build at your library! A full list of February programs can be found below. 

Also during the month of February, we will remove $1.00 in overdue fines from your account for each nonperishable food item or personal care item you bring to the library to donate to the Anchor food pantry. This offer is for overdue fines, and does not apply to charges for lost items. It's a great way to clear up any fines you have, while you help others in the community. 

Do you have any suggestions or comments about the library? We'd love to hear from you. Stop by, give us a call at 518-732-0879, or send an email to director@castletonpubliclibrary.org.

Best, 

Melissa Tacke, Library Director
