Located on the southwest lawn of the Northport Library, Michelle’s Garden incorporates paver art and a commemorative garden bench funded by donations in memory of Michelle DeGeorge. Black-Eyed Susans, Michelle DeGeorge’s favorite flowers, are planted in the garden and featured in the patio mosaic. Michelle DeGeorge worked as a page at the Library from 1991–1995. The DeGeorge family has had a long tradition of service to the Library. Michelle’s grandfather, Fred DeGeorge Sr. and father, Fred DeGeorge managed the Library’s buildings and grounds.
