Portable Charging Station

We love our historic building, but we don't love that there are no electrical outlets in the middle of our space! Now you can plug in anywhere in the library with our portable charging station.

Stranded dowtown with a dead phone and no charger? Come and see us! We have about 20 different adapters for all kinds of devices, so most likely you will NOT need your own cable to plug in.


We have your Movies.


Quit digging around the bottom of Redbox to find something worth watching. The Potsdam Public Library has hundreds of (carefully selected) DVDs that you can check out for free.

We buy the latest Box Office titles as soon as they are released, along with a diverse collection of classics, international films, TV series, and kids' movies, including all those Disney movies that aren't on Netflix.
