This Week on Martine


News from the White Plains Public Library

Amazon Smile Makes Us Smile

Attention Amazon shoppers (which is likely most of us). Please consider supporting the White Plains Library Foundation through AmazonSmile this holiday season. It’s a whole lot less painful than a flu shot and easy to set up. All you need to do is start your shopping at AmazonSmile (not the regular Amazon url, so consider changing your bookmark.) When prompted, enter the White Plains Library Foundation (you just need to do this once, it will remember you). Then whenever you shop, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of eligible purchases to us. Thank you in advance!

The White Plains Library Foundation is a private, nonprofit organization incorporated in 1995 to help the Library reach its long term goals. The Foundation advances library service by raising funds to support initiatives that promote literacy, language learning, career advancement, academic success, cultural enrichment and capital improvements.
