Old Country Road School found a creative way to ensure that students in this school were able to once again enjoy the joys of buying books at the annual school book fair. Principal Laura McConnell and Library Media Specialist Corinne Mikulin worked with the PTA to organize the event to be held outside in front of the school to allow students the opportunity to buy books that interest them and to promote reading.

Old Country Road is planning a push throughout November to get teachers to get a Hicksville Public Library card as models for the students and to encourage community participation.
