Upcoming Events

This year’s summer reading program theme is “Tails and Tales”. Stop by anytime we’re open to get a reading packet! Each reading packet includes a reading log, a book bingo game, a coloring page, and a coupon for a free ice cream cone at Stewarts. Then, when children return their reading log at the end of the summer, they’ll be able to pick an additional prize! Also, keep checking back for Tails and Tales themed events throughout the summer!
Prior to the covid-19 pandemic, our diabetes prevention program was a well attended and well loved program here at the library. This free program focuses on positive lifestyle changes for individuals who are pre-diabetic or at risk for diabetes. If you are interested, please call or email Patricia Byrnes (Carson) to get more information and reserve your space. Patricia can be reached at 518-267-1063 and at pcarson@ilchv.org .
