Welcome to the Peekskill Library Community Network (PLCN).
PLCN brings together local groups and organizations serving the City of Peekskill and the Town of Cortlandt. The purpose is to make it easier to connect to interest groups, activities, and services, local nonprofit organizations of all kinds serving this area.
Why nonprofits and libraries?
Local nonprofits, a major community resource, have information and direct experience addressing issues of concern. Libraries have expertise in resource information management, and both have committed relationships with their community. The intent is for the library community network to make it easier for information to flow between organizations and the community thereby increasing awareness of these resources.
All information presented here is taken from organization websites and/or submitted by the organization for the purpose of listing here. We screen and review information prior to listing, however, we cannot guarantee the accuracy.
Peekskill Library Community Network has the word “library” in it because it had been developed with the Peekskill Field Library. We believe that the public library is the proper place for this kind of directory.
The idea for Peekskill LCN began with a 2011 journal article for the American Library Association’s sister organization, Public Library Association, called, “Public Libraries: How To Save Them.” A book scheduled for release in 2019 will describe how libraries and communities can develop their own network directories suited to their unique locations.
This directory is independently produced. It is not affiliated with any organization, business, or other entity. It has no commercial function: there is no fee for listing, no charge for viewing, no advertising, and no cost to any library wishing to link to this site. Peekskill LCN will always remain a nonprofit service.
