It’s Our 70th Anniversary!

This year is the 70th anniversary of Stephentown Memorial Library receiving its charter back in 1947 and we’ll be marking this exciting occasion with various events over the next six months, beginning with a reception/fundraiser at Berkshire Mountain House on Sunday, June 25th.
