As part of the Great Give Back, the library will be holding a food drive for the New Scotland Community Food Pantry from 10:30 am to 1:30 pm, on Saturday, October 17. High School Key Club members will be standing by in our parking lot to receive your donations. There is currently a need for: canned soups, canned beans, corn, peas and tomatoes, cake and cookie mixes, noodle pouches, shampoo, toothbrushes and toothpaste. The mission of The Great Give Back is to provide a day of opportunities for the patrons of the Public Libraries of NYS to participate in meaningful, service-oriented experiences.
Children ages 3-6 are invited to join Mrs. Brown and Miss Lisa for a virtual storytime at 10:30am, October 24, to share some not too spooky Halloween fun. We can’t wait to see you in your Halloween costume, live on Zoom!
Teens can pick up project kits on Friday, October 16, from 11:00 to 4:00pm, to sew for charity and earn community service time. Choose from telemetry pouches for the cardiac unit of Albany Medical Center (requires a sewing machine), or catnip toys for the animal shelter (can be sewn by hand). Grades 6-12, please register on the event calendar at www.voorpl.org, and pick up your prepared kit. Complete the projects at home, then return completed items to the library.
A limited number of appointments are available Monday-Saturday to browse for and check out materials or computer use. Evening browsing appointments are available on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Please call Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. (518) 765-2791 to schedule your appointment.
