Manhasset’s Munsey Park Elementary School Opens New Little Free Library

Munsey Park Elementary School in the Manhasset Public Schools recently unveiled its new Little Free Library outside the school building. The Little Free Library is a blue box near the Munsey Park Elementary School sign which contains books for the community to enjoy. The new addition, which fosters a shared love of reading, came to fruition thanks to the Munsey Park Student Council and its advisers Melissa Muller and Patrick Dillon, who used their money from fundraising to make the purchase.
On March 8, the Munsey Park Student Council held a small ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the new Little Free Library. Administrators, staff and parents were present for the special event and learned more about the library which contains books for students to borrow. When they are done reading their book, they then return it to the Little Free Library. They can also donate their own books to the library.
Munsey Park Principal Dr. Chad Altman thanked the students for thinking of this great idea and working hard to bring it to the school to support the Munsey Park community’s love of reading.
“We do so many nice things here in Manhasset but having the students lead and have their voice present is the most important,” he said.
Student Council officers spoke about how they will maintain the library and encourage all students to read. Using a large scissor, they then cut the ribbon on the library to the sounds of applause. The Student Council looks forward to having Munsey Park students and families enjoy this library for years to come.
