The Great Give Back is a community service initiative involving all Suffolk County libraries. The mission is to provide opportunities for the patrons of our libraries to participate in meaningful experiences as a way to give back to their communities.
Please join us during the month of October when we'll be collecting NEW socks for people in shelters and/or veteran homes. The socks can be for children or adults. There will be collection boxes in both of our buildings. Visit Youth & Parent Services to make craft packets for children in Huntington Hospital.

Greetings! This past summer we were quite busy in both buildings and I'm excited about all that we have going on! The HVAC and lighting projects at our Main Street location are finished and again, I thank you all for your patience while we improved our building environment. Our next project is the magazine room on the first floor of the Main building. We expect that project to begin this fall.
During the summer, we were also busy at our Station Branch preparing the second floor for programs and new meeting spaces. Our new meeting rooms have been a welcome addition and allow us to offer more programs, community meetings and quiet space. We are continuing to reorganize the first floor. Teen Territory is being moved into a larger space and the children’s area is also being improved with new furniture and a play area!
I was pleased to see many patrons enjoying the library during our summer Sunday hours as well as take advantage of our new extended hours at the Station Branch.
Our newly formed Huntington Library Foundation is having a reception on November 13th to showcase some of the projects they have funded for the library. More information is provided in the hghlight box on this page.
I wish you all a Happy Autumn and hope you "fall" into a good book this season!
