125th Anniversary

Yonkers Public Library Marks 125 Years
Year-long Celebration with New Initiatives and Themed Programs

One hundred and twenty-five years ago, on February 9, 1893, the Yonkers Public Library was officially chartered by the state of New York, signed personally by Melvil Dewey himself. Since then, the Library has established itself as a premier public service to the Yonkers community and beyond. To commemorate this significant milestone, the Library will roll-out a series of programs highlighting the institution’s rich history, as well as celebrations for patrons of all ages.

“The Library’s year-long Quasquicentennial celebration will honor our great libraries in myriad ways. We have collaborated with staff and volunteers, as well as our outstanding board, and supportive community to plan meaningful and memorable programs that celebrate our history and set a bright and exciting course for the future. I invite everyone to take part in and enjoy the Yonkers Public Library’s 125 th Birthday,” said Ed Falcone, library director of the Yonkers Public Library.

In 2018, the Library invites the community to celebrate its 125th anniversary with special programming that honors the past and looks toward our future. One such program is the introduction of the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten initiative.

1000 Books Before Kindergarten, Sat., March 24, 2018

An initiative that promotes early literacy by encouraging parents and/or caregivers to read 1,000 books with their child(ren) before they start kindergarten.

Kick-off parties featuring a musical and magic show, storytelling, crafts, program information and free books for parents that sign their children up for the program. More information is available in the children’s department at each location.

Party times:

  • Crestwood Branch: 11 a.m.
  • Grinton I. Will Library: 12:30 p.m
  • Riverfront Library: 3 p.m.

The 125th Anniversary is a reminder that capturing and preserving Yonkers’ history provides a richer understanding of the community for both past and future generations. The Library encourages residents to share their stories and photographs, particularly any special moments that were spent in any of the Yonkers libraries through the new state-of- the-art Local History Incubator at the Grinton I. Will Library. You can make an appointment to use the space by calling (914) 337-5973.

Throughout 2018, the Library will be hosting many anniversary themed-events for adults, teens and kids. Look for these special programs on our website at www.ypl.org, in the calendar and the Library’s eNewsletter.
