For announcements and updates about the new library building.

A Welcome to the Neighborhood!

giftfromkhkWe had a very welcome visit today from Marie Orlando and Bonnie Shannon who brought us a gift basket from the Friends of the Kinderhook Memorial Library.  Thank you to Bonnie and Marie and all the Kinderhook Library Friends for knowing just the right supplies to include in the basket, the very necessary items like stickies, pencils and bookmarks for the kids, snacks for the VFL staff on those late Thursdays and  a great basket for miscellaneous materials.  We appreciate your thoughtfulness.

VFL Open House on Kinderhook Street

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.bd open h adj2 sue and julieadj
