Supervisor Bill Reilich was joined by the Greece Town Board and the Library Board for a ribbon cutting ceremony unveiling the new Reader’s Corner at the Greece Public Library, located at 2 Vince Tofany Boulevard in Greece.
The Reader's Corner at the Greece Public Library is located near the Adult Fiction Collection. Designed with readers in mind, it includes comfortable seating, "What to Read Next" brochures, bulletin board space for postings about upcoming literary events, and book displays for browsing. The creation of the space was made possible by a Mario D'Aiuto Management Trust donation to the library's gift fund. The space was designed to encourage and entice library visitors to discover new genres, literary events, authors and reading formats.
“The library as "Center for Readers" was identified as a priority in the library's 2017-2019 Strategic Plan, which was developed with in depth community input” said Supervisor Reilich. “The goal is for library visitors to find the materials they are looking for in a timely and convenient manner, have help choosing among the options, and have programs and services designed to engage them in the wider community of readers”.
