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.
The Library's 5th Annual OKtoberfest will take place on Saturday, September 27, from 4-7pm in the library's back yard. Last year we had over 170 people in attendance and raised over $5000 for the library. We're hoping to grow those numbers this year and have some fun while we do, so join us! We're excited for the return of our caterer, Georgia Ray's Kitchen. Tickets for adults are $30 and include a meal full of delicious German delicacies. Each adult ticket also comes with two drink tickets and an entry into the door prize giveaway! Kids' meals are available for $7. Please R.S.V.P. no later than September 16th!

The library will host local artist Al Knoll for a show of his drawings with an opening event on Saturday, October 25 at 4pm. Mr. Knoll traveled to Lascaux, which is a complex of caves in southwestern France famous for its Paleolithic cave paintings. These paintings are estimated to be some 17,300 years old! To prevent light damage to the original paintings, Mr. Knoll sketched in the dark using only candlelight. Join us to view his lovely work and to meet the artist!
