Happy New Year!

joanne 2019

The beginning of a new year is always a good time to look back and reflect on the past year and all the accomplishments that have been made. One special accomplishment was reaching our Station Branch’s 90th Anniversary! We celebrated with a wonderful community event. Many patrons and elected officials stopped by to commemorate and reminisce about Huntington Station and using the Station Branch library.

Happy New Year!

We are fortunate to have two very active buildings to serve our community and we work hard to offer many excellent programs and services. In an effort to continue to improve our services, we are happy to announce that our Station Branch will soon be a Passport Acceptance Facility. Please see call the library for more details.

This past year brought many physical changes to our buildings in the way of renovations and we look forward to bringing you more. As we begin this new year, I’d like to thank you all for your continuing patronage and support of the library. It is truly a focal point of our community.

If I can be of help to you in any way, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me at 631-427-5165, ext. 206 or email me at .

I wish you all a very Happy and Healthy New Year!

Why who makes much of a miracle? As to me I know nothing else but miracles, whether they be animals feeding in the fields, Or, birds, or the wonderfulness of insects in the air, Or the wonderfulness of the sundown, or of stars shining so quiet and bright, Or the exquisite delicate thin curve of the new moon in spring; These, with the rest, one and all, are to me, miracles. ~ Walt Whitman

The interns will be available in both buildings on Tuesdays, at our Main location from 10:00 am – 12 noon and at our Station Branch from 1:00 – 3:00 pm. You may drop in during these times, or call them with questions or for a specific appointment.  Please ask a librarian for details. You may call 631-216-8220 for an appointment or email: .

"Fall" into a good book!
Fall

Greetings! As you have probably already noticed, we made changes to our newsletter and I hope you like what you see! Based on feedback we received from patrons, and the fact that we have so much information to share with you, we added more pages while reducing the overall size and cost. Our paper stock has also changed. Our newsletter now consists of 30% recycled paper.

joanne 2019

Due to new addresses in our district, we have also updated our mailing list. Since we are working with a brand new list, if you don’t receive the newsletter, and live in Huntington School District #3, or would like to be removed from our mailing list, please notify us via email at or call us at 631-427-5165 ext. 202, and we can update the list accordingly. Remember, all of our newsletters are available to view online!

I’d like to highlight our Volunteer Fair as part of The Great Giveback on Saturday, October 19th. Are you looking for a way to “give back” to your community? Stop by and find out about wonderful volunteer opportunities!

We are also collecting items to donate to our local veterans and hope you can help!  Our patrons are always so generous with any drives we sponsor, and we are very appreciative of all the support you give to our community.

Wishing you all a Happy Autumn and hope you "fall" into a good book this season!
