Read 1000 Books Before Kindergarten

1000 Books before Kindergarten is a year-round reading program for children
from birth until they start Kindergarten.

– Why Read? –

Reading aloud helps strengthen language skills and builds vocabulary, two important tools for learning to read. It also builds imagination and creativity. Sharing books with children promotes a life long love of books and reading.

– Program Steps –

Register – contact info@claveracklibrary.org, if you need a library card, sign up online.

Track Reading – Log each book you read, you can read books more than once.

Keep Reading – Don’t stop at 1000! Keep reading, there’s more learning ahead.

It’s easier than you think!

Electric Car Charger

Low battery? No worries.

 

The Claverack Free Library now has an electric car charging station. Located in the parking lot the charging station can accommodate two cars at a time. Free wifi access 24 hours a day. Coffee, free books, cozy chairs available during library hours. The Library is currently only open for curbside pickup by appointment only.

Our Grand Opening was a success- and this is only the beginning!

We greatly appreciate all who made our new library possible.

We look forward to serving you in our new space and we encourage all to stay engaged; using the repurposed library to create and explore your own world of possibilities.

 

Some items are still needed for our children’s room. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation for our new space. The Amazon wish list is available here.

Buy a Brick, Build a Library

Your Library Is Going Places!
Buy a Brick, Build a Library

Bricks are still available for installation in the Spring 2020.

The order form for Adopt-A-Brick is available here.

After years of careful planning, community input and phased construction, the new, enhanced Claverack Free Library and community center is now open and in full operation at the repurposed former A.B Shaw Firehouse (9 Route 9H Claverack, NY). So much more than a place to lend books, this new library center will connect our community through a vast range of cultural, educational and social events and occasions.

For each contribution of $100, a brick will be inscribed as you direct, with proceeds to go to the children’s room at the new library. Bricks will be placed along the sidewalk of the main entrance to assure that your family, friends and loved ones have a lasting presence at the new Claverack Free Library and community center. Makes a great gift!

Thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you at the library.
