Williston Park Library news

From the Director

Summer Reading 2023 is fast approaching.  The kickoff celebration will be on Saturday, June 24 in the parking lot. There will be a DJ and ice cream truck for everyone to enjoy.  Registration for all programs will begin on this day.

Are you new to Williston Park?  Don’t forget to apply for a library card.  Just bring proof of residence in the village such as an updated driver’s license, credit card statement or any bill sent by the Village. Staff will be happy to help you.

Just a friendly reminder for parents/caregivers–please supervise the children in your care, and don’t allow them to climb on library furniture and/or shelving. It poses a safety hazard, and we don’t want to see anyone getting hurt. Thank you for your cooperation.

If you’ve borrowed a museum pass, we ask that it be returned in the library by 10 a.m. on the due date to ensure timely pick up for the next patron on the waiting list.  If you wish to return the pass prior to the due date and the library is closed, please put in the book drop.  We appreciate your cooperation.
