Some Important Updates
First, if you are thinking of attending a program, check the Library website first
. Or give us a call. The Trove and Edge are canceling all programming through mid-April beyond the Trove's regular weekly storytimes on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays at 10:30 a.m. Check our online calendar for full list of cancellations. Special events will be rescheduled.
Second, AARP has decided to suspend the AARP Tax Aide program
at the White Plains Public Library for the weeks of 3/16 and 3/24. They will reevaluate after the 24th. We know this is a very popular program and hope it will return.
Finally, beginning this week, White Plains, along with many other libraries in Westchester, will suspend all intralibrary and interlibrary loans
for the foreseeable future. We believe this is in the best interest of our staff and patrons. This means our patrons will no longer receive items from other libraries and we will no longer send out our items to other libraries. If you have a hold on material owned by White Plains, then it will be held for you like always. However, you may still return your items to any library in the Westchester Library System and borrow materials from any library. We know that this is an important service, and we plan to bring it back as soon as possible.
