Floral Park Teens Honored our Vets for Memorial Day!
Teens had a great time making no-sew blankets to be donated to a Veteran's hospital!
What a generous & wonderful project our teens volunteered to do to honor our Vets for Memorial Day! We all are so proud of our FP teens who contributed their time & our Vets who served our country!
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, www.floralparklibrary.org, stop by our teen table at the Library, or call Mrs. Zuckerman at 516-326-6330 ext.125.
