We will continue to keep you posted here on our website and on our Facebook page. If you have questions, please contact us by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
We've have a new digital service! Hoopla allows you to borrow movies, music, audiobooks, ebooks, comics and TV shows to enjoy on your computer, tablet, or phone – and even your TV! With no waiting, titles can be streamed immediately, or downloaded to phones or tablets for offline enjoyment later.
North Greenbush Public Library provides you 5 instant borrows each month. These digital borrows will reset every month and you can borrow more than one title at a time. Books are available for 21 days, videos are available for 72 hours, and music titles are available for 7 days after you borrow.
Hoopla is available on your desktop, phone, tablet, Alexa devices, Roku, Apple TV, Fire TV, and Android TV. Make sure to download the app to take your borrows anywhere. Any questions or issues, email us at email@example.com.

Bottle Redemption Benefits Library
It's a win-win. You don't have to waste time feeding empties to a machine, and the library gets a donation! Please bring your empty cans and bottles to the 6 Cent Redemption Center, 461 Main Ave, Wynantskill. Thanks to a program sponsored by the North Greenbush Friends of the Library, you can request that your deposit refund be donated to the library. The redemption center will sort and count all of your glass and plastic bottles, and cans eligible for a NYS deposit and will donate the proceeds to the library.
Please note: containers must be redeemed at the redemption center. The library cannot accept empty bottles and cans!

First Library Card
Getting your first library card is a time-honored right of passage, one of the first tangible symbols of maturity and responsibility. To help parents commemorate the occasion, the library has a special "First Library Card" photo op prop.
When you bring your child to the library and register for the card, ask for the "big card." Take a picture of your little one holding our colorful library card to celebrate all the fun of reading.
