The Plainview-Old Bethpage Central School District’s Stratford Road Elementary School recently welcomed children’s author Andrew Lieberman to speak to second and fourth grade students about his science fiction book, The Silversix. Lieberman read an excerpt from his book, explained how he was inspired to write and the importance of becoming a good communicator. The students also presented their own writing ideas to Lieberman, and worked on improving their reading and writing skills with the author.

Thanks in large part to a substantial increase in sponsor support – and Mother Nature’s cooperation – the 2014 Plainview-Old Bethpage Craft and Gift Fair was a rousing success.
A caravan of vendors filled the parking lot of the Plainview-Old Bethpage Library starting at 7 a.m. By the time fairgoers crossed the blue and green balloon arch at 10 a.m. to receive their free T-shirt and bags stuffed with sponsor goodies, there were 108 booths ready to welcome them on the sunny day.
