National Library Week

Happy National Library Week! How are you planning to celebrate? How about sharing why you love—and use—the Library with a friend, family member, neighbor, or colleague. Invite them to join you at a program followed by a coffee and biscotti (yum). Or suggest they attend one of our tech programs or enroll in one of our workshops. Or just share the value of being able to borrow some great content—from books to audiobooks to movies—selected for the White Plains community. As Melinda Gates, National Library Week Honorary Chair says, libraries are the places that open our mind. And can't we all use a little of that?
