On Saturday, October 15th, 500 people gathered for an escapade in love at the ninth biennial Novel Night celebration to benefit the Rye Free Reading Room. It was a novel-inspired celebration with 11 costumed dinner parties hosted in private Rye homes and a festive gathering at the  Mamaroneck Beach & Yacht Club for dessert, dancing, and raffles.  Novel Night funds will build collections, underwrite free children's programs, add new technology and other public service initiatives. Thank you for helping support this wonderful resource for the community, which has impacts for generations to come.
