The Great Giveback

The Great Give Back on October 19 is a community initiative to "provide a day of opportunities for library patrons to participate in meaningful service-oriented experiences."
 
It began  in Suffolk County with Nassau County libraries joining in 2018.  This year the Great Give Back now includes all of New York State with approximately 160 libraries participating with varied events and activities.
 
Syosset's Children's Department has several activities planned for their community members.  Monday (10/14) patrons had an opportunity to  create cheerful greeting cards to send to seniors.  There was also a chance to design a tote bag and fill it with pet supplies to be donated to animal shelters.
 
In addition, the department is running a Sock Drive.  We're asking our patrons to donate new socks which will be sent to homeless shelters.
 
If you're looking for additional ways to "Give Back" visit
and search other local libraries.

Galaxy Slime

Children had so much fun making slime at the library -- such bright, beautiful colors with sparkly glitter!  Galaxy Slime was so popular that we were able to open a second session to accommodate those on the waiting list.






Check out this cool New York Times article about the joys of slime:

ALL THE REASONS TO COME TO THE LIBRARY THIS SUMMER



All THE REASONS TO COME TO THE LIBRARY THIS SUMMER


Let’s go to the library to borrow my favorite books
Sign up for summer reading and get a Nook!

Let’s go, open the door of magic, science, and hope
See the wonders of the night sky through their new telescope!

Let's go, I’m excited to learn to code my drone
Grab a hot spot that I will need for my cell phone!

Let’s go, it’s steaming hot and I need to chill
When I’m hungry, the new library cafĂ© will have yummies to fulfill! 

Let’s go, read and let our imaginations take us far
At the library, with my very own library card!
Poem by Ms. Noureen Jafar
