This December We’ll be Home for the Holidays

The Voorheesville Public Library would like everyone to enjoy being home for the holidays with a variety of media.

  • Listen to VOORPL for the Holiday music playlist on Spotify.
  • Download digital titles from the media streaming platform Hoopla.
  • Need a specialty baking pan? Check our collection shelved in the Cookbook area. Need tools for a “some assembly required” present? We’ve got you covered with our Library of Things.
  • Feel like making the perfect homemade gift or recipe? Creativebug has many instructional videos to get you inspired!
  • Research your purchases before buying. Check out Consumer Reports.
