SML Friday Family Movie Night


Friday, January 23 at 6:30 PM

Bring the kids for a free movie at the library. Popcorn and juice will be served. This month’s movie, The Boxtrolls is rated PG and is about a community of quirky, mischievous creatures who have lovingly raised an orphaned human boy named Eggs in the amazing cavernous home they’ve built beneath the streets of a city called Cheesebridge. The film is based upon the children’s novel ‘Here Be Monsters’ by Alan Snow.  Running time for this movie is 96 minutes.  This event is free and all are welcome!

Weekly Story Time for Preschool Children

Story Time is on Fridays at 10 AM -

**PLEASE NOTE:  In the event of inclement weather, if Berlin Central School District is closed, then Story Time is cancelled.**

Calling all preschoolers (and their caregivers)!   Join us each Friday for some story time fun! In this half-hour session, we read aloud, sing songs, move about, and explore the world around us through literature. Parents and children are encouraged to stay after story time so children have time for free play while grown-ups browse for books and socialize.

Registration is encouraged but not required. For more information, stop by the Library or call us at 733-5750.

Purchase eBooks and Help your library WIN

When you really, really want that eBook NOW

Borrowing eBooks from the Library is a great convenience. It’s free, you can download them from home … and you can get the titles you want right away, most of the time at least.

For those times when you want that eBook right now, but find yourself on a waiting list, there’s WIN, for Want It Now. WIN enables you to immediately buy the title you want, add it permanently to your collection, and help support the Upper Hudson Library System.

When you’ve found a title you want via the Library’s eBooks catalog, and all available copies have already been borrowed (just as with print books, the Library has a finite amount of “copies” of each eBook), you can click on the “Buy It Now” button on the right side of your screen. By purchasing your eBook this way – through familiar retailers such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble as well as independent bookstores through IndieBound — a portion of the sale is credited right to the Library system. The Upper Hudson Library System will use the credit to add more eBooks to its collection.

Thank you for your support!

SML Seed Exchange Program

The Seed Exchange at the Stephentown Memorial Library is now open!

Whether you have been gardening for decades or are just starting out, please come check out our selection of donated vegetable, flower and herb seeds. We have old favorites, as well as some unusual varieties.

The seeds are free, and you are welcome to take as many or as few as you would like.

If you are a beginner and would like some planting advice, leave your name and contact information at the desk and we will try to connect you with an experienced gardener to answer your questions.

If you have some seeds you would like to donate, please drop them off at the front desk during library hours.

Let’s get growing!
