Fun at Purchase Free Library 80th Anniversary Party

I had great fun at the 80th Anniversary Celebration of the Purchase Free Library, one of the wonderful public libraries I represent on the Board of Trustees of the Westchester (NY) Library System. I'm pictured here enjoying a story told by Jean Read, the first Purchase Board President, elected when the library became an independent entity from the Purchase Community House in 1967.

After Harrison Mayor Joan Walsh and Purchase Board President Martha Greenburg spoke, I said a few words on behalf of WLS.

When Head Librarian Anne Collins told the group I am a writer as well as a library system trustee, there was great interest in Heart of Diamonds.
