BEDFORD, N.Y. -- The Bedford Hills Free Library will begin its Centennial Celebration with Heart of the Hamlet at the library grounds on Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m.

“We’re happy to offer this event for all the residents of Bedford Hills, who hold this library so close to their hearts and appreciate its essential role in our community,” said Executive Director Mary Esbjornson.

Heart of the Hamlet is a free festival open to all residents, local business and community groups. The festival features live musical performances by Sloan Wainwright, Jay Hitt, Judy Kass, and the Antioch Baptist Church gospel choir. Children's entertainers include Hudson Valley storyteller Jonathan Kruk, musician Zeb Haber and Nancy Coradin and Rachel Izes leading stories and songs in English and Spanish.
