E. Williston Gets New Library Director

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 School Board will hold a public hearing on the much-debated New York State veterans exemption on Thursday, Nov. 6 at 6:30 p.m. in the Willis Avenue School. It is expected the board will either approve or disapprove the tax exemption during its regular meeting at 7 p.m.

When votes go to the polls next week on Tuesday, Nov. 4 to vote on the Town of North Hempstead’s 2nd Council District seat, candidate Bonnie Parente feels her stance on the building department is what voters will remember when casting their choice. The 2nd council district post is currently held by Peter Zuckerman, a former East Hills trustee. He was appointed to the seat in January to replace Thomas Dwyer, who resigned last year.

 

“That’s the major issue I heard about when I knocked on doors,” she said. “No matter where I am, I could be at the Herricks Community Center or the Albertson Pasta Dinner and

predominately what people ask about is how to fix the building department.”

Samantha Pastore

Samantha Pastore, senior and third-year varsity player, is also co-captain of the currently undefeated (11-0) Mineola Girls Varsity Volleyball team. She is an outside hitter and is often recognized in games by starting rallies with her quick thinking and nimble feet. She earns 20 percent of the team’s points and averages four aces per match.

The Mineola Mustangs varsity football team fell to the Seaford Vikings last week 27-21, missing their chance to tie the top seeds Locust Valley and Roosevelt’s 6-1 Nassau conference IV record.

 

After tying the game in the second half and having the opportunity to capitalize on Seaford’s failed extra-point kick on their final touchdown, the Viking’s senior wide receiver/defensive back Bobby Buell knocked away a pass from Mineola senior quarterback James Gerstner to senior wide receiver Brian Smith in the end-zone with 57 seconds left
