Brynne, a student in Staten Island:
“Mrs. Amy and her staff at Tottenville Library are very friendly. They try their best to work with what they have but also have big plans. They decorate the library in many themes throughout the year. When you see all the little kids amazed at how it is decorated you can’t help but smile. They are able to turn paper towel rolls into a giant elephant and turn the library into a jungle.”
