Dear Friends and Neighbors,
As 2021 comes to a close and the world starts to return to “business as usual,” it can be tempting to want to forget the uncertainty, the loss, and the exceptionally difficult moments in the collective history we have all just experienced.
Throughout the last year, YPL continued to adapt to the COVID-19 pandemic and respond to other challenges, whether it was hosting vaccination clinics, transforming the Will Library to a FEMA assistance center after Hurricane Ida, or alternating between indoor, outdoor and virtual programs.
Since 2018, The Foundation for the Yonkers Public Library (FYPL) has donated over $100,000 to support the Yonkers Public Library and the growing needs of a library system serving the people of the third largest city in the State of New York. Your support has helped to make many exciting things possible. Among the initiatives FYPL support helped fund in 2021 were:
In the months ahead, FYPL support will permit YPL to continue serving people throughout the city in new and innovative ways. In the year ahead you will see innovative programs, exciting events, and more creative ways to re-envision YPL’s spaces, inside and out.
Please consider a donation in support of YPL. It is your continued support that makes this all possible.
