Children's Librarian

Our dear friend Amy Thiel will be moving on to a new job and leaving her position as Kinderhook Library Youth Services Coordinator at the end of this month. From “Take Your Child to the Library Day” to “BIG Truck Day”, Miss Amy brought innovation, teamwork, laughter and fun to the library. On behalf everyone at the library, we say: “You’re off to Great Places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting.

It's sad, but true: not all of our books here last forever. Pages fall out, kids draw in them, or they start to crumble with age. Fortunately, we'll be learning how to up-cycle our old books into awesome crafts! Book sculptures, decorations...we'll give some of our old books a new life.
