“ONE BOOK – ONE MAMARONECK” Community Read

The public libraries in Larchmont and Mamaroneck recently completed a successful and innovative Community Read. During the entire month of October the program “One Book-One Mamaroneck” sought to unite the community through reading. Hosted jointly by both Libraries, the program was the brainchild of Susan Riley, Director of the Mamaroneck Public Library and Laura Eckley, Director of the Larchmont Public Library. The selected book, I AM MALALA: The Girl Who Stood Up For Education and Was Shot by the Taliban by Malala Yousafzai, was the focus of over 20 events and numerous book groups. The events were aimed at bringing residents of Larchmont, Mamaroneck and Rye Neck into a common dialogue that was both thought provoking and educational.
