Altamont Library Notes for Wednesday, May 15, 2019

Please join us for a meeting of our newest book club, which is focused exclusively on mysteries! We’ve got members interested in every subgenre from intense psychological thrillers to low-key cozy mysteries and every type of mystery in between.

If you love a good whodunit, please join us tonight  Thursday, May 16, at 7 p.m. for a discussion of the “Winter Sisters” by Robin Olivera. Set in Gilded Age Albany, this chilling mystery will have you reading with a flashlight under your blankets long after bedtime!

Trivia Night!

On Friday, May 17 at 7 p.m., make a team, study up, and BYOB to our mind-twisting trivia contest! Entrance is $5 and the winners take half the door. Contestants must be 21 and up, please.

Juice and Jammies​ Story Time

On Friday, May 31, at 7 p.m., put on your pj’s and join Ms. Erika for a pre-bedtime story, snack and craft! This low-key storytime will be just the thing to prepare your young folks to count some sheep.  

Chicken BBQ

Save the date! We’re approaching June, which means that it’s almost time for our famous annual chicken barbecue fundraiser on Friday June 14 from pickup from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Our regular crew of volunteer chefs will not be cooking this year, instead leaving the hard work to Wagon Train BBQ, but we’ll still be breaking out the library’s chicken costume for the occasion.

We’ve already had a ton of people in at the library asking for tickets, which are now available. Every ticket gets you a dinner which includes a half chicken, baked potato, coleslaw, roll, drink, and a cookie. Once you’ve got your dinner, you can either take it home with you or spread out on the lawn in Orsini Park with your friends and neighbors and listen to the always enjoyable Traditional Strings.

If you’d like to help us serve the meals, we can always use an extra set of hands, so give a call to 518-429-8354 or send an email to
