Briefly...

• Roosevelt Island now has Freecycle, courtesy of RIRA Common Council member Susy del Campo Perea. It’s an opportunity to give away useful items you no longer need, or to ask for things you do need. You can join at tinyurl.com/FreeCycleRI, and it’s all free. (The site also seeks two volunteer moderators; write to rooseveltisland@mod.freecycle.org.)

• NYC Neighborhood Library Awards are on again, giving Islanders a chance to nominate their favorite NYPL branch. Nominations go to ­nycLibraryAwards.org, or they can be submitted in person at the library. There’s $20,000 in prize money (for the library) at stake. Last year, 4,300 New Yorkers sent in nominations.
