Other libraries include the Yonkers Riverfront Library and the Grinton Library. Some community centers are open as well.

"It's so important because some people are alone in their houses, all alone, who need to get to a nice warm place. Anyone who needs heat can come here," says Gabriella Monaco, of the Crestwood Library.
