FOL SPONSORED PROGRAMS

POETRY & PROSE ROUNDTABLE: Come and join this informal gathering for anyone interested in writing or listening to poetry, first Saturday of the every month, 12:30pm-2pm. All are welcome!

MONDAY AFTERNOON AT THE LIBRARY: FOL sponsors games in the library's Community Room each Monday, 1:30 until closing. Enjoy a friendly game of Mah Jongg, Scrabble, cards and other table-top games along with great conversation.

TEEN MOVIE/PIZZA NIGHT: The Young Adult Department offers teens a chance to view a popular film and socialize while they enjoy pizza and popcorn supplied courtesy of FOL. See the Library's current newsletter for date and monthly movie title.

BOOKS FOR VETS: FOL provides books to the VETS in Riverhead with the help of Commander Lou Baer, VFW Post 414, Center Moriches. He requests books when the shelves are ready and delivers them to their facility quickly and efficiently. As long as there is a need, we will supply the books.

LIBRARY AT THE LAUNDROMAT: This program brings adult, teen, juvenile, and children’s books to an area laundromat. Not every resident can frequent our libraries, so children have access to literature that otherwise may not be available to them as well as adults who may want something to read while waiting.

1000 BOOKS BEFORE KINDERGARTEN: The program goal is to read 1000 books before your child starts kindergarten. Prizes are sponsored in part by FOL to those who reach this goal.

LANDSCAPING: FOL plants and maintains the various plants and flowers in the FOL garden. Helping hands are always welcome for Spring and Fall cleanup.
