Here we grow again!


Please pardon the noise and limited use of our parking lot as construction begins on our expanded parking lot – the latest library renovation!   You may park across the street at the school building.  The work begins on Monday, October 20 and should be concluded by the following week.

We will maintain our regular library hours of Monday through Thursday 12-6, Friday 12-8, and Saturday 10-2.  We are closed on Sundays. If you have questions or need to make special arrangements, please contact Laurenne Teachout, Library Director, at (518) 733-5750.  We will be happy to work with you to find a solution. The project is funded through a NYS Public Library Construction Grant and matching funds raised by SML.

Book Discussion Group


51IFa1QuFCL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_

The Stephentown Library Book Discussion Group will meet on Tuesday, November 18  at 1:30 PM.  This month they will discuss Suite Francaise by Irene Nemirovsky.

Beginning in Paris on the eve of the Nazi occupation in 1940. Suite Française tells the remarkable story of men and women thrown together in circumstances beyond their control. As Parisians flee the city, human folly surfaces in every imaginable way: a wealthy mother searches for sweets in a town without food; a couple is terrified at the thought of losing their jobs, even as their world begins to fall apart. Moving on to a provincial village now occupied by German soldiers, the locals must learn to coexist with the enemy—in their town, their homes, even in their hearts.When Irène Némirovsky began working on Suite Française, she was already a highly successful writer living in Paris. But she was also a Jew, and in 1942 she was arrested and deported to Auschwitz, where she died. For sixty-four years, this novel remained hidden and unknown.

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.

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.
