NEW! – Cooking Club

Our theme for January 2020 is “Try Something New for the New Year.” You can try a type of cuisine you’ve never had before, a way of eating you’ve never tried before, a cooking technique you’ve never tried before, or you can come up with your own interpretation of the theme!

The Cooking Club starts on January 15th at 6:30 pm. (Snow date, January 22). Registration deadline is January 8. Get additional details by contacting the Library. First recipe book: “The Whole 30 Fast & Easy: 150 Simply Delicious Everyday Recipes”  by Melissa Hartwig (books are available through inter-library loan).

Want a head start on February? Then check-out “Food of Sichuan” by Fuschia Dunlop. Bon Appetit!

You can register by calling the Library at 518-235-2570 or emailing us at

What is a Library Pop-Up? A Library Pop-Up is a way to make your public library more public by bringing books and services to you. Our first Library Pop-Up will bring books and other library materials to the Cohoes Senior Center for you to check out. At the Library Pop-Up, you can: Register for a library card; check out books and movies; drop off your materials to return to the library and learn about library programs and services. Join us for our first pop-up event at Lifepath Cohoes (formerly Cohoes Senior Center) on December 20th from 11 am – 1 pm.?
