About the Folklife Center
Celebrating 30 Years in 2023
Heritage • Community • Creativity
The Folklife Center at Crandall Public Library is an award-winning program created in 1993, charged with the mission to research and present the cultural traditions of the upper Hudson Valley and southern Adirondacks of upstate New York. Its core programs–Special Collections, Exhibitions, and Cultural Events–are largely supported by grants, and have attracted a large, diverse regional audience to its gallery, research room, and cultural programs.
