Book Buddy Story Time


Fun was had by all who participated in FPPL's Book Buddy Story Time! Teens and tweens who volunteered to read to children ages 2 & up, attended a special training session and then were eligible to read to the little ones! Thanks to our volunteers and all the children who joined us for this very special event! We look forward to having more Book Buddy events in the near future.

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.



Mother's Day @ FPPL

Floral Park teens remembered their Moms last week at a Mother's Day program. They created a delicious fruit bouquet kabob presented in a beautifully decorated mason jar. Creative fun was had by one and all! For more info about FPPL's teen programs, visit our website,, stop by our teen table at the Library, or call Mrs. Zuckerman at 516-326-6330 ext.125.      



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,, 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.
