In Support of Early Literacy
The Bedford Hills Free Library gala
The Bedford Hills Free Library hosted a gala at the Glen Arbor Golf Club to honor Bedford philanthropists David and Melanie Worby.
In her opening remarks, Terrie Paladino Viola, co-president of the Library’s Board of Trustees, announced that the Worbys had recently pledged $100,000 over a five-year period as lead sponsors of the Bedford Hills Free Library Early Literacy Initiative, which will provide services and a pathway of family engagement, where children and adults learn together.
