Poestenkill Library

Unique Features and Facts:

  • Our comfortable, inviting spaces in our relaxing little library!
  • In the winter of 1855-56, future President James Garfield preached at the Church of Christ Disciples, a quaint little building located on what is now the library parking lot. We have a photo of that building and you can see the library in the background. When the parking lot was being built, the foundation of that building was unearthed. The bricks from the foundation now border our gardens and some were sent to Garfield's museum in Ohio.
  • We loan cake pans!

Local Food:
There is a small market across the street from the library. They make wonderful subs, and have great salads and cookies. You can purchase a snack and eat it on the library porch!
