Donation helps visually impaired

Donation helps visually impaired

If you, or someone you know, needs help reading fine print, or any other sized print for that matter, a recent donation may help. The Merlin Elite Pro HD/OCR reader is an amazing piece of machinery. It can magnify whatever you want to read up to 73x, but it can also read it to you. Not only that, the device has a library of languages. If the document is in Magyar, for example, the OCR (Optical Character Recognition) will read it to you in Magyar. It won’t translate it though. The machine is good, but not that good.Read More Read More

We Checked our Inter-Library Mail and Found Covid Tests!

We Checked our Inter-Library Mail and Found Covid Tests!

Every day, the library gets a shipment of holds or returns from the Westchester Library System which contains 200+ books or other library-oriented materials. Today, however, we were delighted to find that WLS had also sent us 200+ Covid test kits! If you need to grab a test, please stop by the Circulation Desk on the main floor. Also, it is important to note that the expiration date printed on this batch of tests (lot CP22B05) is October of 2022. The FDA has extended this expiration date through April of 2023.Read More Read More

The Judges Have Spoken!

The Judges Have Spoken!

What do The Lorax and Fahrenheit 451 have in common? Both were the subject of the winning essays in our Banned Books Week contest – The Lorax, in the teen category and Ray Bradbury’s classic in the adult. Our panel of four local authors determined which submissions best answered this question- ‘What makes this book so powerful that people want to ban it?’ Each winner received a ‘Books Unite Us. Censorship Divides Us’ mug (filled with candy courtesy of our Teen Librarian, Kim Larsen). Click on Read more to see the winning entries.Read More Read More

Borrow a Chromebook and a Hotspot

These days many people rely solely on their phones and their cellular networks to do their online business. This creates problems if you have limited data or if you need to write something more complicated than an email or a text. One solution is to come to the Library to use our public internet computers.Now we have another option. Borrow a Chromebook and a mobile hotspot. We have two of each. You can check them out for three weeks. See the Librarian at the Information Desk. While we don’t have a printer to lend you, you can send print jobs to the Library using our Remote and Mobile Printing service.Read More Read More

Museum Passes Are Back!

Museum Passes Are Back!

Our Museum Pass program, which is made possible by our Friends of the Larchmont Library, is one of the most popular programs we offer here in Larchmont.

The good news is that the library managed to get back on track… and the best news? The Museum Pass Program is now up and running! Our free passes are available for Larchmont Library cardholdersRead More Read More

Barbara Glab will be exhibiting quilts made by vintage fabric (1930-1950) that have been collected for some time now for the month of July and August. “I love to sew and it is almost like an obsession.

I hope you will enjoy seeing my exhibit.”Read More Read More
