Farmingville, NY – On September 8, Councilwoman Valerie M. Cartright joined members of Terryville and Port Jefferson Station communities for the installation of the newest Little Free Library. Thanks to the efforts of Comsewogue Library Director Debra Englehardt, the Comsewogue Historical Society Museum and Meeting Hall at 358 Terryville Road is now home to the sought after ‘Take a Book/Leave a Book’ honor system kiosk. Children, parents and community members happily selected books and took time to visit the museum with the Councilwoman.

Councilwoman Cartright said, “It is encouraging to see these children and their families embrace the ‘give and take’ honor system of the Little Free Library. The Comsewogue Historical Society is a tremendous resource in Brookhaven and the latest addition of the Little Free Library is another asset for the Terryville and Port Jefferson Station hamlets.”

Students of Terryville Road Elementary School and Principal April Victor joined the unveiling. Northern Brookhaven Chamber of Commerce President Jennifer Dzvonar and her children took part as well as Port Jefferson Station resident and Cumsewogue Library employee Angela DeRosalia who hand painted the little library.
