The Hillside Library is combining with the Long Island Coalition for the Homeless in doing a Hats, Scarves and Glove Drive. There is a bin at the library in which donations could be placed. Our community has always been very generous to our Donation Drives, and we thank you for your continued generosity.
The Library has a new addition to our Museum Pass Program for Hillside PL card holders. It is the New York Hall of Science which is situated at 47-01 111th Street, Queens, NY 11368-2950.
