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!
October 1-31, anytime
Call the Library to request a cleanup kit (garbage bags, gloves, hand sanitizer) and commit to cleaning your block, a neighborhood park, a local beach–wherever, whenever and with whom you are comfortable doing so. Then, email email@example.com a picture of your haul so we can see your efforts and provide service hours (if needed). Please register.
