The Great Give Back is a community service initiative created by the Suffolk County Public Library Directors Association and the Suffolk Cooperative Library System, in conjunction with the Nassau Library System. The mission of The Great Give Back is to provide a day of opportunities for the patrons of the Public Libraries of New York State to participate in meaningful, service-oriented experiences. This year, we are celebrating the positive difference we all can make during the month of October. By acting separately, or in small groups, we can collectively impact our community for the better!

All books should be free of tears, rips, writing, mold/mildew or water damage. No encyclopedias, reference or special interest books. Popular fiction and general interest preferred. No registration.
