As part of our initiative to restore the Carnegie Library, we have created leather book spines that will be place in the Carnegie Library. Each spine is handcrafted by C&H, a local book bindery in Yaphank, NY. The book spine can be customized with an appropriate message from the donor, and it will reside on a bookshelf in the fully restored Carnegie Library.
