Shinnecock with Janine Tinsley Roe


For thousands of years, before Europeans settled on Long Island, the Shinnecock and other Native American Indian tribes, called the island “home”. They ensured early settlers’ survival during their first winter by helping them to prepare shelters, teaching them how to hunt, fish, and farm in their new location. Janine Tinsley-Roe, founder of The Shinnecock-Sewanaka Society Inc., and Thom Hoffman, filmmaker, produced the film Shinnecock to bring awareness to this important part of Long Island history. This program of film, lecture, and Q&A, presents the history, culture, and unique perspectives of the Native people. It is a microcosm for nation-wide efforts advocating social justice, environmental stewardship, and re-examination of the unjust portrayal of Native history. Registration required. Open to all.

Join Our Newest Reading Club:
1000 Books before Kindergarten!
1000 Books before Kindergarten!

Research shows that children get ready to read years before they start school so this is the first step in encouraging your child to love books. 1000 may sound like a big number, but if you read just one book a night for three years, you'll have read even more than 1000! So come into the library, pick up a kit (available at the Main’s Youth & Parent Services Reference Desk or the Station Branch Reference Desk), and help your child develop a love of reading. They will even earn prizes along the way
