 September is Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when Westchester libraries and public libraries nationwide to make sure that our students have the most import school supply of all – a free library card.

Resources at Westchester libraries are available to anyone who has a library card. Students can turn to the library for materials, programs and services that support academic achievement.
Students can use their library cards from home, too.  Our libraries offer access to important educational resources, like online resources that students can access from home with a library card, like e-books, online homework help, online databases and more.

 

“Westchester libraries provide students with the tools they need to succeed,” says Terry Kirchner, Executive Director. “They provide students with exciting and engaging programs that make learning fun and resources that they can access from the library or from home – all with a free library card. It is for these reasons that a library card is most important school supply of all.”

Gifts for the Foodie with a Library Card!

December 20th, 2012 No comments

The best decision I ever made was to marry a man who loves to cook.  Not surprisingly, I’d say the second best decision may have been to take up running.  Aside from amazing tomato sauce he makes some of the best bread.  When that is matched with a flavorful olive oil – it’s matrimonial heaven.

I’ve decided to share that joy this holiday season; he’s making the bread and I did the “hard” work of buying the olive oil.  My go-to place is Pure Mountain located at 11 North Broadway in Tarrytown.  In addition to being able to sample their flavorful oils, they have amazing balsamic vinegars that make a feast of anything from meats to salads, pears to poundcake.

Need an amazing Christmas gift – try the basil infused olive oil and the lemon balsamic vinegar, which together make a salad an event.  Or nab a small bottle of chocolate balsamic vinegar and pack it with a homemade pound cake.  Or make up a few loaves of bread using my husband’s latest favorite recipe (thank you New York Times)  no-kneed, 18 hour ciabatta-type bread (which has as it’s base this amazing New York times sourced recipe); bag each loaf with a nicely-wrapped bottle of peppery olive oil.
Library Lovers Alert:  Pure Mountain says they’ll give 10 percent off to anyone who shows their library card at check out.
