Celebrate Stephentown This Weekend


Please note we will be closed this Friday as we prepare the library for this weekend’s events during Celebrate Stephentown, including our all-day Family Book Festival on Saturday featuring our annual book and media sale.

We’ll also be having an exclusive preview of our sale on Friday night for those who have donated to our 2017 Annual Appeal. And, on Sunday, we’ll host an event called Stories of Stephentown during which members of our community get together and share their favorite memories.

Our regular hours will resume on Monday, when you can also attend our viewing party for the full solar eclipse beginning at 1:00 p.m.

Watch The Solar Eclipse With Us At SML


There’s a total solar eclipse coming!

Why not watch it with us at our viewing party featuring a program to help kids and parents alike understand what the eclipse is all about?

We’ll have special viewing glasses, funded by a grant from the National Center for Interactive Learning Space Science Institute, and refreshments will be served.

Registration is appreciated, but not required.

Beginner Dance Classes Start August 15th


Join SML’s own Maria Spear for a three-week session of introductory dance classes, where she will teach Salsa, Swing, and the Foxtrot.

Classes will be held on Tuesdays at 7:00 p.m. starting August 15th.

Please call the library at 518-733-5750 to register.

Make Us A 70th Birthday Card!



We’re currently celebrating our 70th year of serving the Stephentown community.

Drop in on Monday, August 14th between noon and 6:00 p.m. and make a birthday card for your library.

We’ll have all the supplies you need to make a one-of-a-kind original, which will go on display at our Celebrate Stephentown events.

Farewell To Summer Camp


Our 2017 Stephentown Youth Summer Camp ended its successful four-week run on Friday, August 3rd with over 60 kids participating in all the fun.

We’ll be posting more photos and sharing memories soon (keep an eye on our Facebook page!), but for now, as we catch our breath, we would just like to thank SML’s Youth Committee chaired by Rebekkah Corbett, the Stephentown Youth Commission, Jessica Rontey, Akili Duncan, Kim Roppolo, and the many counselors and staff for all their hard work.

Thanks to all the campers and their families, too!
