A Treasure of Digital Media

overdrive iconMany people are not aware that the library is a main source of free, downloadable books, magazines, audiobooks, and videos for all ages! All you need is a library card and the free OverDrive app (and the free Nook app for magazines).  All these items can be downloaded easily to your smartphone, tablet, or computer. You never have to pay a late fine!  All items are returned automatically at the end of their circulation period, or you can return them yourself with a click of a button.  Even better, the magazines you download are yours to keep forever!

Youth Books, Videos & Facts OnlineSpecial for children, BookFlix is a terrific resource of fiction and non-fiction books to enjoy while online.  Children can read the books independently, watch and listen to read-alouds, play educational games, meet the author, and much more– all related to the stories and subjects they enjoy most.  All you need is a library card and internet connection!

For more information, see the instructions under the Search menu, or call (518)810-0314 to request one-on-one assistance.

September is Library Card Sign Up Month

library cardWe’re making it easier for you to obtain your own library card!  Registration has been expanded to include children age 3 and up (with parent or legal guardian), and unaccompanied teens age 16 and up (with valid photo ID). Make sure to look for our table at all the local schools during Open House, or stop in to see us at the library.
Spread the word to friends and family about getting a library card – you’d be surprised how many people in our community don’t know what they are missing out on by not visiting the library!
