Through careful planning and exceptional creativity, the district has built and installed “Little Free Libraries” at each of the five elementary school buildings. 

The initiative was initiated and implemented by District Director of Literacy and Funded Programs, Mr. Frank Lukasik.  Additionally, each individual library was constructed by East Meadow students enrolled in the district’s carpentry classes which are led by teachers Mr. Scott Stacy, Mr. John Scerbo, Mr. William Burke and Mr. Gregory Greco. 

There are more than 75,000 “Little Free Libraries” around the world in 85 countries. East Meadow joins the movement to share books, bring people together and create a community of readers.

The “Little Free Libraries” were installed for everyone in the community to promote literacy through book sharing. The district encourages readers to not only select a book to read, but to also add books to the collections at the elementary schools.

In addition to the installation of the “Little Free Libraries,” summer reading challenges have been created to spark excitement for the new resource and build a community of readers. Students are encouraged to visit the libraries, take a picture, post them to social media, tag @emeadowschools and/or the elementary school and use the #emeadowreads in the post. 

“The community can help by keeping this collection stocked with good reading material,” said Mr. Lukasik. “We hope everyone enjoys this precious gift to our community!”
