WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- The League of Women Voters of White Plains will be honoring Libby Hollahan, executive director of the White Plains Public Library foundation, at its annual winter party on Sunday, Feb. 8.
It will be held at the home of Janice Abbott and Richard Bernstein at 177 Soundview Avenue from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Food will be served and everyone is invited to attend.
As director, Hollahan is currently working to support the Library’s long term and current program needs. She has brought in major funding for programs, building projects and technology.
Hollahan moved to White Plains in 1983 with her husband Tom and raised three children, Bobby, John and Laura, all graduates of White Plains High School.
Over a period of 10 years, in her first career, she worked at Citigroup as a corporate banker and at Moody’s Investors Service as a corporate bond analyst.
When her third child was born she began her second career, this time as a community volunteer.
At first, she volunteered at the Early Childhood Board of Advisors at Memorial Methodist Church, then became extensively involved in the White Plains School district, including serving three years as co-president of the High School PTA.
She also served as a board member of the White Plains and US Figure Skating Association.
Building on her experience in community involvement, she began her third career as a development professional, working in the development departments of Legal Services of the Hudson Valley and Purchase College.
In 2009, she joined the White Plains Public Library Foundation, first as a development consultant and then as its executive director, from 2010 to the present.
