Valley Stream North Opens Little Lending Library

May 9, 2023

Valley Stream North held a ribbon cutting on Friday, April 21 to officially open the school’s newly installed Little Free Lending Library.

The opening was the culmination of a year-long effort after the North’s National English Honor Society presented ideas for the community library to Principal Dr. Robin Small last year. Honor Society Vice President Gabriella Barriga spearheaded the committee, saying “I wanted the community to have access to books even when the library is closed and access is limited.”

Dr. Small was able to allocate funds to have the library purchased and installed this spring. The National English Honor Society held a book drive to stock the library, and the group will be responsible for its maintenance.

Honor Society Advisor Lori Belbol said that the goal of the library is for the community to, “share a love for reading by taking, borrowing and leaving their favorite books.”
