Old Forge Library property now equipped with EV charging stations

Electric vehicle charging stations at the Old Forge Library

Old Forge Library staff is pleased to announce that there are two new electric vehicle (EV) charging stations installed on the property and ready for use. In keeping with the tradition of providing needed services for the public, the Library’s Board of Trustees decided this would be beneficial in serving the needs of the public and allow electric automobile owners the opportunity to come in and explore what the library has to offer.

The Board’s Vice President, and project manager for the charging stations, Dave Berkstresser said, “We can now offer the library as a destination for the entire family while they are charging their vehicles. With the transportation industry trending toward EV’s as a viable alternative due to all of the advanced technology, this seemed to be a perfect fit in keeping with the Old Forge Library’s mission of providing needed services.”

The charging stations are located in the rear of the library at the end of the parking lot on the right-hand side. They are conveniently located with easy access, 24 hours a day and seven days a week.

In the case of a power outage (which happens occasionally) the library’s charging stations will also be available for use through the generator which powers the building.
The Old Forge Library is located at 220 Crosby Boulevard in Old Forge, NY. To keep tabs on upcoming library programs and events, please call  (315) 369-6008 or visit:

    Excellent. Even through these are the slower level 2 chargers, we need more throughout the Adirondacks, especially where people spend some time: Adirondack Health, grocery stores, hospitals, etc.

  2. Please accept my gratitude to the writer for providing this wonderful article. The article was informative and well-written, and it was great to see that the Old Forge Library grounds now have electric vehicle charging points.
