Teens Celebrated St. Patrick's Day!
Teens celebrated St. Patrick's Day at FPPL by making tasty Irish soda bread scones. Our generous teens donated their delicious scones to the needy and took some home to munch on with family and friends!
Way to go teens! You make Floral Park proud!

Children Reading to Dogs at Floral Park Library
Our library sponsored the Bideawee Children Reading to Dogs program on Friday. The children were thrilled to sit with the dogs and read their favorite stories to them~the dogs seemed to be enjoying themselves as well! We hope to have our canine reading companions visit us again soon.
Digitized Issues of The Gateway Available in the Library
Back issues of The Gateway from 2003 through 2012 are now available for viewing on the Library's internet terminals in digital format. This digitization was made possible with a donation by AAA Taxi.
To find the issue* you want, go to the Library's homepage, www.floralparklibrary.org, and click on "Gateway" from the menu on the left- hand side. Choose the year you want, then the issue you want (for full date, mouse over the icon), and click. The issue you seek will come up in PDF format. Best of all, it's searchable, including the ads. Ask our librarians for a demonstration.
We hope to digitize additional editions, starting with the year 1926, as more funds become available.
*The March 16, 2005 issue is not available.
