The Plainview-Old Bethpage Public Library is now home to a handsome trophy case donated to the library by the Plainview Sports Council. A ribbon cutting ceremony was held to dedicate the new case on Saturday, Sept. 25. Members of many of the area’s teams were present along with Town of Oyster Bay councilwoman Rebecca Alessia and Nassau County legislator Joseph Belesi. The sports trophy case is the result of the collaboration between the library and the Sports Council, and will feature awards earned by local teams. The trophies will be displayed on a rotating basis so that each teams’ achievements will be recognized.
David Kaufman, chairperson of the council, thanked library director Gretchen Browne and trustee Michael Polansky for the opportunity of locating the case in the library lobby, a high visibility spot in the community. “It was our pleasure to gift it to the library for future generations of children to enjoy,” Mr. Kaufman said.
