Library budget vote

The annual Lake Placid Public Library vote for the fiscal year 2021-2022 will be held at the library from 10 a.m.. to 6 p.m. Tuesday, May 11. Please come and support your public library. You must be a U.S. citizen, at least 18 years of age, and have lived in the school district for at least 30 days. Mark this important date on your calendar.

Ms. Linda’s Storytime

Every Friday morning at 10:30, Ms. Linda meets with preschool children via Zoom. She shares stories and songs that encourage participation from her young friends. Anyone wishing to join the story group can email Bambi at librarian@lakeplacidlibrary.org or call 518-523-3200 to be invited.

Springtime StoryWalk

To coincide with I Love My Park Day this Saturday, May 1, the library will reinstall the StoryWalk of Christian Robinson’s “You Matter” at the John Brown Farm State Historic Site. Families can walk along an easy path at the farm and read the pages of this beautiful book. Even if you visited this last year, we encourage you to visit again as children gain new insight with each reading. Don’t forget to share your family experience on the library’s Facebook page. This and other titles by this author/illustrator are available for checkout at the library.

Thank you, AARP

We want to take time to thank the AARP volunteers for their continued dedication to the community. With all the safety mandates in place this year, they still were able to assist people with their tax preparation by setting up virtual meetings with those who were able to. A special thanks to Betsy Senkowski, Carol Pinney and Travis McElyea for all your hard work these past months.
