This week the Library and the Friends of Larchmont Parks are focusing on Vanderburgh Park, more commonly known as Turtle Park.

On July 23, Larchmont Public Library is ending its subscription with Cloud Library. All holds and checkouts will be terminated at that time. Almost every title currently available in Cloud Library will be available in Overdrive the next day. Using only one platform for our newest eBook and eAudiobook purchases will simplify the borrowing process for our patrons. If you would like assistance with any of our online services please sign up for a one-on-one Tech Tuesday session or contact the Reference Desk (834-2281 x3).
It is possible that you may have never noticed the plaques mounted to the left side and the right side of the Library’s front door. And why would you?

Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, both plaques were recently removed, cleaned thoroughly, and returned to their respective location. Each plaque commemorates events in the library’s history. So next time you visit, take just a moment to read them. You’ll be among the first to be able to do so in quite some time.
