The Food Pantry is in Need of Toilet Paper!

A message from the Food Pantry- “We are always asked “what does the food pantry need?”  This month we need toilet paper.  We would like to include a couple of rolls in next month’s bags but we will be short about 100 rolls.  If you can help us, drop off your donation at the Town Offices on Church Street (or at the Claverack Library.)”

Battle of the Books – Wish List

Help the Claverack Library Help Kids Read This Summer!

This summer the Claverack Free Library will once again be participating in the Battle of the Books Reading Program.

Battle of the Books is a national Summer Reading Program for middle school students who will be in the 6th through the 9th grade in September. Participants in the Mid-Hudson Library System program are asked to read eight selected titles and then participate in trivia battles based on the books. A Regional Battle is held the Saturday following Labor Day in September.

The goal of the program is to promote a love of reading in middle school-age children, to expose them to titles and authors that they might not encounter in school and to inspire teamwork and good sportsmanship in an atmosphere of friendly competition.

You can help us by purchasing the pre-selected books from the Claverack Free Library’s Amazon Summer Reading Program wish list. When checking out you can have the books delivered directly to the library or you can bring them in.
