Briarcliff Manor Cuts Ribbon on Resident-Run Library

Residents of The Club at Briarcliff Manor have come together to establish a library for everyone who lives at the community. 

On Aug. 8, 2022, residents cut the ribbon on their passion project of a library for the community, spearheaded by Independent Living resident Ann Barringer Spaeth. She is a former bookstore owner and a self-described lifelong community organizer.
