Message from the Director


The summer is winding down, and what a crazy time it’s been. With over 350 people of all ages participating in the summer reading program (not to mention program attendance) I think it’s safe to say Pleasant Valley has been a Reading Town! If you are looking for a good cause to donate to, the Library is partnering with Dutchess Outreach to sponsor a Food Drive in our lobby for the month of August. Stop by with your donations any time the library is open.   In addition, Stop & Shop on Route 44 in Poughkeepsie has chosen our library as the charity of the month. So anytime you buy a reusable shopping bag in August, the library will receive $1. Stay tuned for more Community Connections as we head into the fall.
