Ranger Dawn Olsen from the Martin Van Buren National Historic Site will read holiday stories to children and we will find out how President Van Buren celebrated St. Nicholas Day when he lived at Lindenwald. Participants will have an opportunity to make a craft to keep for themselves and one to give to a local Nursing Home. Refreshments will be served following the program. For ages 4 & up. For more information, please call the Library at 518-392-3666.

We have a new self checkout machine, located directly opposite the downstairs circulation desk (complete with instructions on how to use it). If you are in a hurry and there’s a line or if you are just curious about checking out your own books, give it a try! Photo source: http://flic.kr/p/cBJ5d
