Library Passport: @EGLibrary

 East Greenbush Community Library

Sometimes it’s hard not to be jealous.  To be held up against something and found wanting is very hard, even when it’s an “apples and oranges” thing.  I’ve explained to my library board that we’re a Stewart’s Shop, and this library is Target, and there’s nothing wrong with being either until you demand that Stewarts starts carrying furniture.  But I digress.  The East Greenbush Library is a special district library that covers a sprawling township with no real center.  They are next to the Greenbush YMCA, and the night I visited they were hosting a farmer’s market in the parking lot between their buildings.

 Fancy entry hallway has large meeting rooms on both sides, and built in display cabinets currently showing off a scout display, kid’s creations and ads for summer programs.

Front desk (with “trap” decoration above).

Inviting entry into the children’s area sucked my offspring right in.

Picture books pulled into different subject areas for fun browsing (but not sure how it affect retrieval of a specific item?)





Such an awesome idea for the teen program- a scratch-off ticket and raffle entry display.


Yep.  Apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. When the kids aren’t at my library, they’re at this one.
