TKirchnerDayFriday, August 28, 2015, has been proclaimed “Dr. Terry Kirchner Day” in Westchester by County.  Dr. Kirchner was one of the honorees at the Mount Vernon Public Library Foundation’s Light the Night with Literacy Gala on August 26th.  Westchester County Legislator Lyndon Williams (District 13) presented Terry with a proclamation in recognition of his support of literacy and the Mount Vernon Public Library.

The Gala was held to celebrate the collective efforts to support the Mount Vernon Public Library, and all proceeds will go toward supporting their Children’s Library.  As Tanesia Walters, current President of the Mount Vernon Public Library Foundation, noted:  “We must aid in fostering the growth and nurturing the youth of our community. Mount Vernon has future judges to appoint, lawyers to name, architects to train and community leaders to develop.”

This year’s honorees were recognized for their exemplary community leadership, and the other honorees included Camille Banks-Lee, former President of the Mount Vernon Public Library Foundation and former Executive Director for the City of Mount Vernon Youth Bureau, and Kenneth C. Davis, bestselling author of Don’t Know Much® About History: Everything You Need to Know About American History but Never Learned.

The Mount Vernon Public Library is the central library of the Westchester Library System, where Dr. Kirchner has been the Executive Director for the past 6 years.
