The public librarians from the “Mighty Five Libraries” will be visiting William O. Schaefer the week of June 6th to June 13th to share all the wonderful learning programs being offered this summer! This summer’s reading theme is “A Universe of Stories” and we are fortunate to have the South Orangetown libraries offer a wide variety of exciting programs and events all summer long.

Please Note: Your child will NOT be receiving a Summer Reading log from William O. Schaefer.

Please have your child bring their Summer Reading Log to school with them in September for recognition of their participation.
