Somers Library Visits Kennedy Catholic High School

Our young adult librarian and our reference librarian, Tara Ferretti & Valerie Herman visited Kennedy Catholic High School and presented an overview of the valuable resources available to the students from the Somers Library and the Westchester Library System, specifically our digital collections (ebooks, audio books, movies, music, etc), career tutorials (e.g. Lynda), readers advisory (e.g. Novelist) and especially our database collection. The discussion of the databases included tips and best practices when doing research - a topic many of these students could certainly use as they come towards the end of their high school careers. Besides speaking to the students, we also anticipate receiving around 125-150 new card applications from students and faculty. This is a wonderful and exciting community outreach program and the library is very pleased. Photo courtesy of Kennedy Catholic High School.
