Our beautiful new railing!

During your next visit to the Library please stop to admire the wonderful, new railing on the stairs. It is a gift from Ron and Loretta Mulson of Lake Luzerne. Ron designed and built it and delivered it on the 16th of July. Please note the design pattern that repeats on both the wrought iron fence and the railing. And Thank You to Loretta  for the professional paint job.

We are so grateful to Ron and LorettaDSC_0255 (2) (1) for this generous gift of time and artistry.

A Board Vacancy

The Library has an opening on the Board of Directors for a Hadley Resident. Our charter states that board members will come from both towns. A person who loves libraries and has a desire to serve will be a perfect fit. Call John Plantier at 696-4285 for additional information

A Generous Donation

We want to thank Serendipity Thrift Shop for the generous donation to the library. It is a wonderful example of the support our community extends to its members. An appropriate book will be added to our collection in Memory of Joyce McKnight as well.

Do you know your library can’t buy eBooks from many publishers?

We can buy a printed book from these same publishers, stick it on the shelf, and lend it out—-but digital content is treated differently by the publishers and the companies who manage digital content licensing. Think that’s wrong? We do too!
We pay the same price and most times a bit higher for an eBook as compared to a hardcover. We lend them the same way–to one person at a time. If you have been on our eBook site, you can see the long wait lists. We desperately want to offer you these eBooks. But the companies won’t let us.

As your library, we commit to continuing advocacy for change in these policies. We need your help. You can write, call and/or email each publisher to register your opinion. For your convenience, the contact information is provided below. Thank you!
