Hundreds of people filed into the Chappaqua Public Library today to have former President Bill Clinton sign their copy of his new book.
Some people, like Cynthia Borgman, of Woodstock, Conn., drove for hours to meet the former president, and then had to wait on a line that wrapped around the bookshelves of the library.
The fans of Chappaqua's most famous resident were rewarded for the long wait with signed copies of Clinton's fourth book, titled "Back to Work: Why We Need Smart Government for a Strong Economy."
"He's such a bright man," said Barbara Smith, of Ossining. "He's got some really good ideas."
Clinton told reporters he makes it a big point to have book signings at local libraries and bookstores.
"I think bookstores are still really important with how communities feel, what it's like to live in them," he said.
The former president also said that 10 percent of the proceeds from the books sold today will go to the library.
