We Met Our Goal!

The Scholastic Book Fair was a success! Thanks to your generosity, the "All for Books" fundraiser will be able to provide the funds needed to supply two Long Island school libraries effected by Hurricane Sandy with a shelf of brand new picture books. Didn't make it to the fair? You can still purchase books by shopping online and help to support our cause. You can browse an expanded book selection and the best part is that all orders ship FREE to the school. You can check out our Book Fair Website here.
