Friends of the Library


We are happy to announce the installation of the Free Book Exchange & Library Information kiosk located at the Manhasset LIRR Station, generously donated by The Friends of the Manhasset Public Library.

The unique red mini British phone booth will contain gently handled books and information flyers.  Our community members are encouraged to take a book for their reading pleasure!  Our Library Staff will be replenishing the book supply on a regular basis, so we encourage you to check back often.  Also, you can add a book and share the joy.
