Williston Park Library News – Community News

The 2022 Oceans of Possibilities Summer Reading Program was a great success. We offered many wonderful programs and the children had a great time. Thank you to the following sponsors who helped make this program possible: Friends of the Williston Park Library, Rotary Club of Williston Park, Haller-Zaremba Agency, American Legion Post #144, Chamber of Commerce of the Willistons, Weigand Brothers Funeral Home, Frantoni’s , Hilderbrandt’s, Gelateria dei Coltelli, Gino’s Pizzeria, Wendy’s Dunkin’ Donuts & Carvel. Thanks to Solomon Schechter School for using their parking lot for our launch event.

Thank you to all of the wonderful volunteers and artists at St. Aidan who donated their time to help with the various programs and paint the windows in the library with this year’s theme.

They are: Susanna Denny, Emma Gormley, Tommy Fortunato, Beatrice Denny, Sebastian Mendieta, Nicole Kolasny, Aidan Logan, Katie West, Ashely Voyer, Jason Boyd, John Conroy and Emily Herr.

The library still has several copies of books for St. Aidan’s summer reading. They are on carts in the main reading room, with signs indicating the level.

If you have borrowed a museum pass, we ask that you return it to the library by 10 a.m. on the scheduled day to ensure prompt pick-up of the next patron on the waiting list. If you wish to return the pass before the due date and the library is closed, please drop off the book. We appreciate your cooperation.

The library is distributing COVID-19 self-test kits while supplies last.
