Butterfield Library

Hello, Spring.

It's that time of year ... finally.

If you need yard tools, the library has a bunch you can borrow. We have rakes and shovels, as well as a leaf blower and power washer.
We also have lots of programs planned, including our Friends Annual Book Sale. The Preview Sale begins on Friday, May 18th.
Registration for our tuition-free summer camp opens on Monday, April 16th at 10 am. Call 845.265.3040 or register online.

The library is saddened by the loss of Jean Marzollo. She was an amazing friend to the whole community and her memory will live on through the many people and organizations she touched, including the Butterfield Library. Learn more about The Jean Marzollo Children's Room.

If you would like to make a donation in Jean's memory, please use the button below.
