As we work on returning to whatever our new normal is these days, we continue to be cautious and will keep the health and safety of our patrons and staff in mind. We are balancing the return of in-house programs with both hybrid and virtual offerings to meet the needs of patrons who are at different comfort levels of interaction.
We have heard from many of you how the Library has helped you through the pandemic by providing a combination of information, entertainment, ways to deal with, and escape from, stress, alternate ways to attend programs, and by offering curbside service and Materials by Mail to minimize coming into the library. Thank you for your feedback. This is truly a time when your library is an important and necessary institution for the community, and we are glad to be able to help you through this time.
As we look ahead to our new normal, we are also looking ahead to the future of library service and what added benefits we can bring to the community. We have two active buildings in two separate areas of the community, and we are committed to providing the best service we can to the entire community.
I know this has been a very difficult time for many people, and the upcoming holiday season might make things even harder for some. If there is anything we can do to help anyone, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me at 631-427-5165, ext. 206 or email me at .
Wishing you all a happy and healthy fall and holiday season.
– Joanne Adam, Library Director

Curbside Pickup Rules and Guidelines
We have instituted new technologies to limit contact between staff and the public to keep our staff and patrons safe. Currently, if you have the HPL mobile app you can download your barcode to limit contact in your future library transactions.
Please help the Huntington Public Library assist our community by donating new mittens, gloves, and children’s masks to keep hands warm and faces safe in school this winter. (Please, only donate new, sealed masks/gloves/mittens).
All donations will be placed on The Mitten Tree at the Main building, and later donated to the Helping Hand Rescue Mission in Huntington Station. Again, only NEW and SEALED masks will be accepted.
Donations can be dropped off until Thursday, December 30. For more information contact Adult Reference Services at: 631-427-5165, ext. 173, or email us at .
If you are considering nursery school for your child, come to HPL's 15th Annual Nursery School Fair. Speak with school representatives and find out about the schools and their philosophies. Open to all.
