Little Free Libraries

12 “Little Free Libraries” are installed across the Town and Village of Saugerties. “Little Free Libraries” are free book exchanges (take a book, leave a book – but not a book you’ve checked out of the library!) for promoting literacy and the love of reading as well as strengthening a sense of community.






























Thanks to the immeasurable help of the Town Parks and Building crew, these 12 Little Free Libraries will join the nationwide movement to share books, bring people together and create neighborhoods of readers.

The Saugerties Little Free Libraries are located:
1. 113 A Partition Street, Saugerties (Lucky Chocolates)
2. Glasco Firehouse/Little League Field – 138 Glasco
3. Mt. Marion Park – Park Circle

Scholarship Announcement

Xea Kirkland, Saugerties, has been awarded a $1000 scholarship from the Friends of the Saugerties Public Library.
Kirkland, an AP student and community volunteer, plans to attend Clark University where she will major in community, youth, and education.
She is a daughter of Arden Kirkland.
Kirkland said “I grew up in the library,” which nurtured her love of education and community service.
The Friends serve as support and a fund-raising arm for the library.  Friends President Ray Rebholz said, “The scholarship is based upon community service, especially at our library, along with other volunteer service.  We are pleased for Xea receiving this award.  She’s a role model for other young adults.”
Gail Ledwith, chair of the Friends’ scholarship committee, said that Kirkland was the committee’s “first choice.  Her commitment to the Saugerties Library and other community service is to be applauded.”
