Happening at the Williston Park Library

From the Director

The Friends of the Williston Park Library are looking for adults in the community to volunteer for the organization. Some of our core members are “retiring” and we’re looking to fill those vacancies, specifically, that of President. If you’re interested, please call Carolyn Stalters (742-0412). The Friends of the Llibrary sponsors many things for the library, such as the museum passes, Bookpage magazine and supplies for the summer reading program. Potential dissolution of the group would mean the loss of these services to the library.

 

We are suspending donation acceptance until further notice. We are at storage capacity. Please consider donating to The Book Fairies. Their contact number is 516-557-6645.

The library is still distributing Covid-19 tests while supplies last. Please ask at the Reference Desk.
