Members of the Great Neck Library Board of Trustees Building Advisory Committee and staff will give a 90-minute presentation describing the planned renovation to the Main Library Building at Temple Beth-El on Sunday, Nov, 10 at 3 p.m. On Nov. 19, the public will vote on a $10.4 million referendum, which will decide the next step in renovations.
A short slide presentation showing the conceptual design plans, an explanation of the timeline and funding plans will be followed by a question and answer period. The Main Library Building, located at 159 Bayview Avenue in Great Neck, opened in 1970.
After 40 years of use, much of the library’s infrastructure has reached, or is about to reach, the end of its useful life.
At the time of its opening, the library was heralded as ahead of its time in design and function. In the fall of 2011, after the previous referendum plan was defeated, and a number of earlier attempts to renovate and modernize the building failed, the Library Board created a Building Advisory Committee, chaired by current Board President Marietta DiCamillo. This group worked as a team to create a plan to accomplish the renovations.
To learn more about the planned renovation, visit the Great Neck Library website at www.greatnecklibrary.org or call the Interim Library Director Laura Weir at 516-466-8055.
The temple is located at 5 Old Mill Road at the corner of Middle Neck Road and Old Mill Road.

Despite a disappointing playoff loss against the Wantagh Warriors, Sewanhaka Indians Head Coach George Kasimatis, is pleased with his football team’s season.
“I’m proud of my team,” he said. “But you are never satisfied unless you win the whole thing.”
The Indians faced a big challenge this year, moving up into Conference II left them as the new kids on the block, unfamiliar with the teams they would be going against.
Kasimatis will have a tall task next year replacing graduating seniors, which made up most of his starting lineup. Kasimatis said most of the offensive line, such as Danny Gianotti, Adrian Gonzalez and Louis Segarra III, and the defensive line, such as Justin Alexandre, Peter LaTorre and Peter Militano are seniors, many of which have started multiple years for him.
