The Voice of Business in Yonkers since 1893
The Yonkers Chamber of Commerce is the city’s voice of business, aggressively promoting measures and issues in the interest of conducting business in the city and working against anything that impairs or threatens the vitality of doing so. At every turn, the Chamber advocates and initiates programs designed to enhance the image of Yonkers and stimulate the marketing of Yonkers-based products and services. The Chamber actively "partners" with various government entities and business organizations to form a powerful network extending into every segment of business society.

Now with three branches, nearly 90,000 registered patrons, great collections, and popular programs for all ages, the Yonkers Public Library has much to be proud of.
