Gale Virtual Research Library

Kid’s week at the Library, April 2-6th

Looking for something to do over the school break? Come visit the Library with your children and see all that we have to offer.

We are having Story Time for children, grades K-5, at 10:30am each morning during the week.

On Tuesday 4/3 we will be offering a children’s program on the USS Slater from 11:30-12:30

During World War II, 563 Destroyer Escorts battled Nazi U-boats on the North Atlantic protecting convoys of men and material. In the Pacific they stood in line to defend naval task forces from Japanese submarines and Kamikaze air attacks. Today, only one of these ships remains afloat in the United States, the USS SLATER.

Moored on the Hudson River in Albany, New York, the USS SLATER has undergone an extensive restoration that has returned the ship to her former glory. The museum offers hour-long guided tours, youth group overnight camping, and a historic location to hold naval reunions.

Fine Forgiveness week!!
We will also be offering a Food Drive to support the City’s Food Pantries. Bring your donations to the library that week and we will forgive fines on your card. (Certain limitations apply. Ask library staff for details.)

During the week we will also have on display selections from the Choose Cohoes for Art collection, as well as an assortment of examples from Ms. Linda Larmon’s personal doll collection.


The Library’s free WiFi has been repaired and is available for patrons

Phone and Wifi are currently down, but we have power.

While the Library currently has power, our phone lines are not working. We hope to have phone back up this afternoon.


The Library’s WiFi is also down. We are working on a solution at this time and hope to have it back up this week. Please watch this space for updates.
