On Saturday, December 12th, our new building was open for a preview of what has taken place in Phase 1 of the ongoing renovation at 1036 Kinderhook Street. We appreciated the enthusiasm and very nice comments of the many people who dropped in to inspect the work and to share cider and donuts with us. A highlight of the evening was an informative and very interesting presentation of the history of the library in Valatie and the Kinderhook Street building itself given by Dominick Lizzi, Valatie Village Historian. We are looking forward to the move to our new location very early in 2016. Please check the web page for exact dates on which we will close the Church Street building and then open the Kinderhook Street facility.
