Come Grow With Us!  Monthly meetings are the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 3:30!

Join our lively group working to improve the Town of Esopus Library. Although we are known for the Book Cellar in the downstairs community space, we do many other projects and events. All of our proceeds go towards supplementing library programs, events and projects. Memberships start at $10 for individuals. Email us with any questions. 

Extra Book Sorting Needed!

We have many book sorters away for the winter months. If you are able to help sorting and stocking the book cellar, we would appreciate the extra hands! Meet downstairs Mondays, 10:30am-12:30pm or Friday, 2pm-5pm.
