Fall Gala with Ron Chernow

Save the Date! Please join us on October 20th for the White Plains Library Foundation’s 2018 Fall Gala — a special evening with one of today’s most distinguished commentators on history, politics and business in America.

Ron Chernow’s bestselling books include The House of Morgan, winner of the National Book Award; The Warburgs, which won the George S. Eccles Prize; The Death of the BankerTitan: The Life of John D. Rockefeller, nominated for the National Book Critics Circle Award; Washington: A Life, which received the Pulitzer Prize for Biography; Alexander Hamilton, nominated for the National Book Critics Circle Award and adapted into the award-winning Broadway musical Hamilton and Grant, named one of the 10 Best Books of 2017 by The New York Times Book Review.

Funds raised through the Gala help support Library programs that promote literacy, language learning, career advancement, academic success, cultural enrichment, civic engagement and much more!

Did you know the White Plains Public Library is one of the State’s busiest libraries outside of New York City? Last year, we welcomed over half a million visitors and circulated 620,000 items –  that’s nearly 200 items checked out, each hour!  Next year promises to be even busier now that the first floor renovation is complete and there’s more space for meetings and programs. Please join us and help ensure another year of outstanding programs and services at the White Plains Library!
