Library Expedition


Cohoes Public Library

Unique Features and Facts:

  • We have a life-size, hairy, stuffed Mastodon in our Library. (Doesn't everybody?)
  • The Library is housed in a former Episcopalian church built in 1895.
  • We loan fishing rods, museum passes, and Playaway tablets.
  • Locally, General George Washington and other Revolutionary War figures were guests of Colonel Van Schaick, and likely slept at the Van Schaick Mansion in Cohoes.
  • The Cohoes Falls also makes an interesting stop while you're in town!

Local Food:
LePage's Market offers ice cream and sandwiches and a lovely view of the falls. Guptill's Coney Express Ice Cream is regionally famous for its ice cream.
