Present a Program?

You may use the contact webform on the Contact Information page to make a program suggestion. Please note, we receive many solicitations for programs throughout the year and so we may not get back to you if we have no interest, feel there would not be an audience, it we believe the program to be a marketing tool, or if it doesn’t fit into our program plan for the immediate future. But we may retain your information for future use. Please note we plan out our programs a season in advance and need, at the very least, 2 months planning time prior to presenting a program or event.

Renew an Item I Have Checked Out?

Most materials are renewable 1 time only unless there is a hold on the item. Exceptions include express items (i.e. Rapid Reads or 3-Day DVDs) and books brought in from outside of Westchester Library System’s member libraries (otherwise known as ILLs or Inter-Library Loans).
