"Fall" into Reading!

joanne adamHello to all! This summer we had over 500 children, teens and adults Build a Better World with our summer reading clubs! A lot of exciting programs and good deeds added to this experience. Along this same theme, we are participating in the first annual Great Give Back, a county-wide event for everyone to give back to your community! Please see the above article box on this page for details. I was also pleased to see many patrons enjoying the library this summer during our open Sunday hours at our Main Street location.

Thank you to all who generously donated school supplies to the Long Island Coalition for the Homeless. You helped ease the back-to-school worries of many children and parents.


I’m happy to announce we have awarded contracts to Roland’s Electric, Inc. and JNS Heating Service, Inc. for work at our Main Street location. Please see Library News on this page for more building upgrade information. We will try very hard to have minimal impact on day to day operations while undergoing construction.

We have recently renovated our Local History Room and I invite you to join us at an open house on October 25th from 5:00 – 7:00 pm.

With September being Library Card Signup Month, I’d like to encourage anyone who doesn’t have a library card to stop in and get one. I wish you all a Happy Autumn and hope you “fall” into a good book this season!

Please feel free to contact me at any time: (631) 427-5165, x 206 or by email at .

Warm Summer Wishes!

joanne adamHello and happy summer to all! As you start to think about your summer vacation and family activities, please remember, in addition to the MUSEUM PASSES we circulate, the library also sells DISCOUNTED TICKETS to some area attractions. 

Just a reminder, we are keeping our Main Street building open on Sundays this summer from 1:00-5:00 pm. We all seem to lead such busy lives; I’m hoping this helps to make your library more convenient for you.

This past spring, we participated in some community events including an Earth Day Celebration and The Tulip Festival at Heckscher Park, as well as Relay for Life at Huntington High School. We enjoy participating in these events and it’s always nice to see our patrons when we are out and about.

Our Summer Reading Club theme, Build a Better World, has me thinking about all the different ways we can each do our part to help make our world a better place. If each of us could do one special thing to build a better world, think of how great our world could be!  Our Summer Reading Clubs are available for ADULTS, TEENS and CHILDREN.  I hope you have a wonderful summer and will consider joining one of our reading clubs. While you think about how to build a better world, take advantage of your library and use our resources to help become a better you!
