Carl DelVecchio Memorial Library

We’re happy to announce that the Nassau Digital Doorway users now have access to over 3K magazines! There is a separate tab on top of the NDD browser page.
The Williston Park Library is excited to announce our partnership with Page Turner Adventures to offer children a virtual and fun summer experience.
Please refer to the children’s calendar of events on our website, willistonparklibrary.org. Each week will feature a different theme and each day offers a new experience — theater shows, stories, crafts, children’s book author and illustrator interviews, contests, games, special guest performers, virtual field trips, and much more.
Monday is Show Day featuring a virtual story theater show; Tuesday is Craft Day featuring crafts, games, recipes, science experiments, and other activities; Wednesday is Author and Illustrator Day featuring fun interviews, read-alongs, trivia games, book giveaways and other activities with children’s authors and illustrators; Thursday is Mashup Day featuring more crafts and activities; and Friday is Guest Day featuring special guests related to that week’s theme.
