No matter your experience–all questions are welcome. This class is open to all ages and abilities.

NEW at SML – LEGO Club


Weekly Story Time for Preschool Children

Story Time is on Fridays at 10 AM – Beginning on Friday, 9/19

**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.

Book Discussion Group

master 2

The Stephentown Library Book Discussion Group will meet on Tuesday, October 21  at 1:30 PM.  This month they will discuss The Master by Colm Tóibín.

Like Michael Cunningham in The Hours, Colm Tóibín captures the extraordinary mind and heart of a great writer. Beautiful and profoundly moving, The Master tells the story of a man born into one of America’s first intellectual families who leaves his country in the late nineteenth century to live in Paris, Rome, Venice, and London among privileged artists and writers.
In stunningly resonant prose, Tóibín captures the loneliness and the hope of a master of psychological subtlety whose forays into intimacy inevitably failed those he tried to love. The emotional intensity of this portrait is riveting.

Group meetings are held in the Community Room at the Library from 1:30 to 2:30  p.m.  Bring a lunch if you like.  Copies of the book are available at the library desk.  New readers are always welcome.  For more information, call 518-733-5750.

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!
