Protect yourself!


We would like to invite you to our Library on Thursday, April 13th – 6:30 p.m. Officer Danbury, Hoosick Falls Police Department, will give a presentation on educating the community in personal crime prevention strategies to reduce the likelihood of crime while out and about or at home.

Do you know what to do during a home invasion or how to possibly prevent one? This is only one of many topics to be discussed. Come and bring your questions and learn how to better protect yourself. Want to know about investigation procedures? This is your chance to ask.

Parents, bring your teenagers and use this chance to educate them on safety issues. This is one event you do not want to miss!

This creates a community that looks out for one another and can partner with the police to assist and create a safe environment.





This is to remind you that …

besides checking out books, we have videos, audiobooks, books in large print, magazines, five computer stations, free wifi, copying available for .15 per page and computer print-outs for .20 per page.

You can send or receive faxes for $1 per page.

We are more than happy to request books for you from other libraries within the Upper Hudson Library System, including videos and audiobooks. You can learn a new language on-line and access ancestry.com

Of course, you can request your own material on-line here or at home. So, while it is mostly about books, there are many other things we have for you.
