Speak up for NYS Library Aid

The Governor’s flat funding proposal for community libraries puts state library aid at $86.6M, equivalent to 1997 funding and $16M short of where it should be. The New York Library Association has drafted a letter you can use to voice your support for fully funding NYS Library Aid in the FY 2015-2016 Budget. Go to the letter >>

Jeter Unfiltered

by Derek Jeter

- Recommended by Seth Jacobus


Derek Jeter’s twentieth and final season in Major League Baseball marks the end of a sports era. Jeter Unfiltered is a powerful collection of never-before-published images taken over the course of Derek Jeter’s final season.


The New York Yankee’s shortstop -- five-time World Series victor, team captain since 2003, and one of the greatest ballplayers of all time -- is a beloved and inspiring role model who displays the indefinable qualities of a champion, on and off the field.


In this book, the famously private baseball legend takes us behind the scenes -- inside his home, the stadium, the gym, at his Turn 2 Foundation events, his fortieth birthday party and more – as he looks back with candor and gratitude on his baseball career. The result is an intimate portrait bursting with personality, professionalism, and pride.


Jeter Unfiltered is Jeter as you have never seen him before: unguarded, unapologetic... unfiltered.

Available at your library (place hold).
