New summer reading books have arrived!

This year, YPL librarians collaborated with Yonkers Public Schools’ (YPS) library services team to select new titles for summer reading. Thanks to an increased collections budget from the City of Yonkers this year, YPL got to order lots of fresh copies of new works and old favorites!
