Thanksgiving Turkey Rods!

The days are shorter, the air is crisp. Perhaps your house smells like fresh baked cornbread?

Thanksgiving is only short two days away!

While the dark might make some younger patrons sleepy, Monday night, some young gourmets trotted into the Syosset Library Children's Room to make a Thanksgiving treat!

Check out some pictures of the adorable Thanksgiving Turkey Rods below. If you ask me, they look too cute to eat. Almost.

Don't you just want to gobble (gobble) them up?

Happy Thanksgiving Day!

Veteran's Day

The Syosset Library recently presented two programs in honor of Veteran’s Day. 

Author Valerie Pfundstein visited the Children’s Room on November 5th and read her book Veterans: Heroes in Our Neighborhood to an audience of adults and children.  In a moving presentation, she told us stories about friends and family members who are veterans, including one German Shepherd. She encouraged the children to find the veterans in their own families and to write down their stories.  

On Veteran’s Day, the Banjo Rascals performed a patriotic themed concert in our theater for the enjoyment of all.

A world of gratitude to all our veterans, past and present.

Life was better in the old days. Or was it?

That's the question Greg Heffley is asking as his town voluntarily unplugs and goes electronics-free. But modern life has its conveniences, and Greg isn't cut out for an old-fashioned world.

With tension building inside and outside the Heffley home, will Greg find a way to survive?
