Robert K. Steel, New York City Deputy Mayor for Economic Development, will be honored on Wednesday, March 7, 2012, as the eighth recipient of Greenwich Library's Peterson Business Award. President and CEO of the Aspen Institute and bestselling author of Steve Jobs, Walter Isaacson will present this prestigious award to Mr. Steel.
The award will be presented at the 2012 Peterson Business Award Dinner, which benefits the Greenwich Library. Library Trustees Susan Bevan and Annette Wilson will serve as co-chairs of the event. "We are honored to present this award to Mr. Steel, a leader who has local roots, yet a world-wide reach," said Jennifer Baldock, president of the Greenwich Library Board of Trustees. "He exemplifies the values cited in the award's creation, with an exceptional career that has spanned the business, non-profit and government sectors."
Greenwich Library is pleased to announce that it has acquired The Ruby, a handheld video magnifier that enhances small print.
Recently, patrons who needed assistance reading DVD or CD cases or any other small print had to rely on magnifying glasses. With The Ruby, the text is displayed on a brightly lit 4.3 inch screen and can be magnified without any distortion of traditional magnifying glasses. Some visually impaired patrons will benefit from The Ruby's contrast mode which reverses the color of the background and the text.
