Your Support Helps Sustain Us

Our beautiful new library is open and free of debt. But we still rely on our friends for critical ongoing support — for new acquisitions, better software, and for more innovative and flexible programs that meet the needs of all of our patrons.

Please know that your one-time annual or monthly recurring gift is more important than ever. But be assured that every gift counts — whether one-time or recurring. Either can be set up by check or on PayPal.

Pay Pal Claverack Library

Direct monetary donations may be made to the library by mailing a check payable to “Claverack Library,” P.O. Box 417 Claverack, NY 12513. For mailed donations, please submit a donation form.

Either will make you a Friend of the Library. And in these unprecedented times, we all need our friends.

Thank you.

Amazon Wish List & Amazon Smile

We have an Amazon Wish List. On the list we have some items we’d like to have for our new Library of Things, items you need now but don’t want in your house year round. We’re also looking for items like replacement books for a JE series that’s had a lot of use, a few new games, displayitems and more.

Buy via Amazon Smile and double your support for the library!

You can help support the library when shopping on Amazon. The Claverack Free Library is registered with Amazon to participate in the Amazon Smile program. Amazon makes a contribution to the Library each time a purchase is made through the Amazon Smile program. Shopping at is no different from shopping at Amazon, with the sole exception being financial support for the library. There is no cost to you. Go to to start shopping  and designate the Claverack Free Library as your choice to receive donations from Amazon. Please consider the Claverack Free Library in all future purchases from Amazon.
