The month of October saw two Westchester libraries, Mamaroneck Public Library and Larchmont Public Library combine efforts for a Community Read. And it was timely! The book chosen to be read was “I Am Malala”, by Malala Yousafzai. Less than two weeks into the month long event, Malala was chosen as the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize Winner.
Many activities were planned in both communities and the attached Event Guide for Programs, the Readers Guide for the Book and the Essay Contest for High School Students gave opportunity for the whole community to find a way to participate.
