On March 29th, the Village of Cedarhurst came together to honor the life and legacy of Dr. Hindi Krinsky and celebrate “Hindi’s Libraries,” the organization created in her memory by her husband, Dovid Karnafogel, and her colleague, Leslie Gang. The event took place in Andrew J. Parise Park, where a new Little Free Library was unveiled in honor of Dr. Krinsky’s dedication to education and literacy.
The beautiful day was a fitting backdrop for the occasion, as family, friends, and elected officials gathered to see the new library and hear about Dr. Krinsky’s passion.
Dr. Krinsky was a beloved HAFTR High School teacher and mother of five who tragically passed away very suddenly and unexpectedly at the age of 32. She was an inspiring educator and a dedicated advocate for children’s education and literacy. Her commitment to education and passion for reading and literature inspired the creation of Hindi’s Libraries, which has donated over 400,000 new and gently used children’s books to over 750 recipients worldwide since its founding in 2019.
The library at Andrew J. Parise Park is a poignant tribute to Dr. Krinsky’s legacy, providing a collection of children’s books for the community to enjoy. “Whether you’re a young reader or young at heart, we invite you to take a book from the library and enjoy reading it in the park or at home,” said Dovid. Dr. Hindi Krinsky’s legacy lives on through this library, inspiring a love of learning and the joy of reading in children and adults alike.
