Plainview-Old Bethpage John F. Kennedy High School music students recently performed in the Plainview-Old Bethpage Library’s 15th Annual Friends of the Library Recital. The student performance included sections of vocal, piano and guitar music, as well as Chinese zither selections. The event also featured a Chinese yo-yo segment performed by members from the Plainview Chinese Cultural Center. This year’s recital was dedicated in memory of a Plainview-Old Bethpage ‘Friend of the Library’ community member, Rosemary Stewart.

The kids may be grown. The marriage may have not worked out. Perhaps retirement affords more free time than was anticipated.
Enter The Transition Network, an national social group featuring an active chapter on Long Island that meets regularly at the Plainview-Old Bethpage Library.
Judy Forman, Plainview resident and program co-chair, noted that The Transition Network is an organization of women ages 50 and over who are ‘transitioning’ into the next phase of their lives — whether it be retirement, divorce, losing a loved one or so on — and helping them to meet new people while expanding their horizons.

Plainview resident Cila Schlanger was eager to attend a two-hour property tax workshop at the Farmingdale Public Library last week — the problem is, so were many other people.
“I was taken aback once I came here because there was such a line,” she said. “I thought it would be a two-hour workshop, but individuals had to wait to be helped on a first come, first serve basis.”
Residents are trying to save a buck whenever and wherever they can, especially when it comes to property taxes. To try and lend a helping hand, elected officials recently hosted a property tax exemption workshop at the library, drawing residents from across Nassau County.
