We are writing this letter to express our full support for Dara Gruenberg’s candidacy to serve as a trustee for Scarsdale Village. We both have had the privilege of working with Dara for more than five years in her many volunteer roles. We each served as presidents of the board of trustees for the Scarsdale Public Library (SPL), between 2019 and 2021, a time that encompassed the fundraising for, and renovation of, the SPL — as well as the difficult period of the pandemic. Dara was president of the Friends of the Scarsdale Library during that time, and we collaborated frequently on issues related to running the library during construction and while COVID presented special challenges.

We always found Dara to be accessible, responsive and committed. She was easy to work with, a great problem solver and a real doer; when Dara takes something on, she sees it through to completion. Dara is a truly inspiring leader who galvanized our community to embark on the successful campaign to renovate the library, ensuring that this crucial institution remains a vibrant hub of Scarsdale Village life for generations to come. Dara had a vision of what our library could offer, and she worked diligently with others to make it a reality.
