Natural science educator and snake handler Stephen Amos unveils his reptilian friend Sunday at the Dorothy Alling Memorial Library. Menacing-looking yet docile ‘Jake the Snake’ – a 30-year-old, 30-pound, 9-foot red-tailed boa constrictor – awakes from a lengthy nap to greet over 40 local youths at the Dorothy Alling Memorial Library on April 14. Jake’s appearance was the grand finale of National Library Week in Williston.



  1. Louis M. Izzo says:

    I take frequent walks in my neighborhood and surrounding sidewalks/roads on Industrial Avenue and Rt 2-A and occasionally see what appears to be a dog-poop bag, nicely tied, but simply left there in the road or on the sidewalk. I would like to remind dog-walkers that this is not appropriate. Please carry it off.

    Thank you for meeting your legal responsibilities.
