A new small library has popped up in Glen Cove through collaboration between Girl Scout Troop 1420 and Tiegerman Middle School. The project, a Sidewalk Library, exists as a small and accessible cabinet outside the school where students and members of the local community can take out and leave in books to share. The Sidewalk Library is already stocked full of books, and Tiegerman officials said they were eager to work with the Girl Scouts to keep the library active and plentiful.
“Literacy is so important, especially among young people, and we hope that this Sidewalk Library will encourage more children to read and keep reading,” said Jeremy Tiegerman, program director at Tiegerman. “We thank the Girl Scouts for sharing our passion for books and we look forward to working with them in the future.”
