Spending some time at the beach or pool this summer but don’t want to lug handfuls of books? GPL has the solution! The Greenburgh Public Library has tons of different library apps you can download from the comfort of your own home. All you have to do is load them on to your eReader, tablet, or smartphone and you’re all set for a relaxing day enjoying some good reads, movies, or music.
While relaxing, challenge yourself to Greenburgh Public Library’s Summer Time eBook Challenge. We are challenging patrons to cumulatively read 10,000 eBooks over the months of June, July, and August.
