Limited Edition Mugs Now For Sale


Our new limited edition mug, celebrating our now-lost-to-history (or someone’s dorm room wall, as Larry Eckhardt likes to say) road sign commemorating our home’s distinction as the only Stephentown on Earth, was a big hit with patrons during our September is for Members Drive, and many of you have since asked if you can buy one as a gift for the holidays.

Starting this week the answer is yes! The remaining stock is now available for sale at our front desk for $15, along with our other SML-branded products, including our tote bags and hats.

These will go fast, so stop by soon to grab your piece of history while supplies last.

LEGO Club at SML


Friday, December 9

6:30 – 7:30 PM

Do you have a Lego enthusiast who could spend hours and hours every day engrossed with creative building? Then this club is for you and your family! Bring your young Lego builder to the library to build and create with our large collection of bricks. Donations of Lego bricks and accessories are also welcome at the Front Desk. Come and have some fun with other Lego fans!

This month’s theme is Holiday.  We will have Lego Bingo and a Lego speed building contest! We will display all the creations of our Lego builders at the library until next month’s meeting.  Prizes for contest winners!


Mitten Tree for the Holidays

The Stephentown Memorial Library is sponsoring a Mitten Tree again this year.  We will begin accepting donations on November 26 and complete our collection on December 16.  We invite the community to bring new mittens, gloves, hats, and scarves to decorate our tree at the library.  We will donate these items to a local agency for distribution to families in need.  Children’s items are especially needed.  Help us keep others warm this holiday season and decorate our Mitten Tree.

Shop Local in our Book Sale Room

Thanks to many generous local donors, we have  books, DVD’s, Audiobooks, and more for sale during regular library hours in our book sale room.  Prices are very reasonable, mostly .50 to 1.00.  We are putting out new items each day and many in new and giftable condition.

Do your holiday shopping locally and support the library!

Red/Green Elf hats for sale for $5.00 to add to the holiday spirit.
