Love the library? Take a cruise!

The Troy Public Library today announced its upcoming "I Love My Library" cruise to be held on June 18 at 6:30 p.m.

The library was forced to close down it's Lansingburgh and Sycaway satellite branches earlier this year because it's budget could not support the level of demand for its services at all three branches.

Library officials are also working to raise enough funds to support the installation of an elevator in the historic downtown branch.

Here's the announcement:

"Relax and enjoy a three hour cruise down the Hudson River aboard the Captain JP II and support the Troy Public Library at the same time!

The Captain JP II is a modern luxurious yacht with four decks and a capacity of 600 passengers. Its three climate controlled enclosed decks can seat in excess of 500 guests for dinner, while still allowing plenty of room on the open air decks for strolling or dancing the night away under the stars.

Cruise includes the following:

  • Buffet dinner - hand carved top round, vegetable lasagna, chicken florentine, tossed salad, choice of potato or rice, a vegetable medley, rolls and butter, coffee, tea, and dessert.
  • Entertainment provided by a jazz combo on the upper deck and a DJ for dancing.
  • A cash bar will be available.

Cost for the evening is $65 per person.

Please call the library at 274-7071 for tickets and additional information."

Kudos to the library officials for taking the suggestion to do some fundraising to make some of the additional money they need. Not only will you raise the money, you will raise awareness and promote use of the library. It's a "win/win" situation. It makes me hopeful that the library board will eventually do the right thing and re-open the closed branches.

I'd like to thank the city Republican party for spearheading the closing of those branches.

I heard the library was auctioning off statues, when and where?
