Susan Corsello was recently hired as Village of East Williston Library Director, and made her second appearance at a Village of East Williston Board Meeting earlier this month.
Corsello sees the library as playing a special role in any community, serving as a meeting place for residents, and has expressed a particular admiration for her job as providing an outlet to interact with the community on a daily basis.
“I have always had a love for books—reading is still my favorite hobby,” Corsello said, who spoke with enthusiasm at village hall about upcoming library events. “The friendly and welcome atmosphere at the East Williston Library is what attracted me.”
A native of Williston Park, Corsello spent 12 years living in Manhattan until she moved to East Williston in 2001. Her first job was at the Williston Park Public Library, where she worked as a library page at age 15.
Corsello graduated from Fordham University with a bachelor’s degree in accounting, became a certified public accountant and received an MBA in finance from New York University’s Stern School of Business.
After working in finance for 16 years, she resigned to spend time raising her two children, who are now 11 and 13. Corsello spent years visiting the library with her children and has been a member of a book club, keeping up on current releases.
“I was ready to get back into the workforce and jumped at the opportunity to assume the role of director at the East Williston Public Library,” Corello said. “This role gives me the opportunity to work with the books that I love while using my business skills to manage the operations of the library.”
East Williston Mayor David Tanner remarked that Corsello is “a wonderful addition to our village community—we are lucky to have her.”

The Mineola Mustangs ended last year’s playoff run in a 34-6 drubbing from the West Hempstead Rams. Mineola was poised for another post season push in 2014 and it showed last week, with a 15-14 victory over the Rams in homecoming weekend.
With a slow start in the first half, Mineola (4-1) put their first points on the board in the second quarter with a field goal by senior Robert Lang. After a touchdown by the Rams (2-3), they headed into halftime 7-3.

Despite two goals from Liam Going, the BU11 Mineola FC squad fell to a relentless and talented Hota Panthers team at Soccer Park in Plainview on Sept. 6. Hota jumped out to a 4-0 lead before Going connected on his first tally, launching a 30-yard free kick that dropped over the Hota keeper. The Mineola striker’s second goal brought his team to within two goals of their opponent, but Hota scored several more goals in the second half in a strong performance. Mineola’s Nicholas Buffolino and Luke Sommese gave solid efforts for Mineola in the season-opener for both teams.
