Podcast Feature: Harry Potter and the Sacred Text

"If you love talking about Harry Potter and constantly find yourself re-reading the series, then please check out our podcast! We are reading one chapter of Harry Potter every week (going in chronological order), and discussing it and how it relates to our lives. We pick a theme and view the plot, the characters, and the subtext through that lens. We totally believe that the more times we read Harry Potter, the more we get out of it." Listen on Soundcloud.


Friends of the Library Needs New Members

The Friends of the Potsdam Public Library is a volunteer group that supports the mission of our public library. We accept donations of good, used books and use them to stock our book store in the basement of the library. We also hold several yearly book sales and sell high quality donated books on Amazon. Finally, we send off unsold books to a consignment service in exchange for a percentage of their sales value. All of the money we make in these ventures goes to support the library and its programs.
