Browse a huge selection of used fiction and nonfiction titles and children’s books, all sorted by subject, beneath the tents. On Saturday, purchase vegetable, annual and perennial plants; feast on breakfast, homemade baked goods, or lunch; and enjoy free activities for kids and great raffle prizes.

Prices are $1 for hardcover books, $.50 for paperbacks, with some art, travel, and other books of value priced accordingly. On Sunday after 12pm, buy a Claverack Library tote bag for $10 to fill with regular-priced books for free.

Construction permitting, the library trustees will give tours of the progress of the new Claverack Library and community center next door in the former A.B. Shaw fire house.

Donations of clean used books are accepted until Sunday, May 3 and volunteers are welcome to come help sort under the tent prior to the sale. Baked goods may be dropped off at the library on Friday, May 8.

History of the Claverack Free Library & Reading Room

Sunday, April 12Old Library – 3:00 PM

Do you wonder how our library grew into the beloved institution standing on the corner of routes 9H and 23B? Claverack resident John Lee has spent many years researching Claverack and Columbia County history and genealogy. He will present the Claverack Free Library and Reading Room in its historical context, the meaning of a community library, its founders and early supporters, from the steps leading to its creation and early organization to the present day as we stand poised to expand to meet the 21st century needs of our community.

Bring your questions; stay for refreshments.
