Lending Library Open for Business in Cluster A

patchogue-1 patch.kidsSharing their love of reading, Frank P. Long Intermediate School teachers Mary Pettit, Trish Gallina, Tony Giresi, Laura Heaton and Nick Paolillo worked together to create a “Lending Library” for 5th Grade students in Cluster A.  Stocked with books donated from “The Book Fairies”, a Long Island based non-profit organization, the library aims to foster literacy by inspiring and cultivating a love of reading among students.  The library is maintained by the students themselves, who are free to both borrow and donate their own books to the collection.  They ensure the success of the program by making sure it runs smoothly and offering new features to keep kids motivated.  Book requests, book reviews and book raffles are among the features added since the program began.
