A Message from the Director

joanne 2019

Dear Patrons:

Thank you all for your continued cooperation and understanding as we try to navigate what this new normal is for us. We are still limiting the use of our buildings due to safety precautions and have not yet opened up to in-person programs or community group meetings.


We are still in Phase 3 of our reopening plan with some modification of our facilities and services. I do not know when we will move to Phase 4 which will lessen the modifications we have in place. Our virtual programs will continue into the New Year until we feel we can safely hold in-house programs. If you are interested in attending any of our programs but do not have access to a computer at home, please let me know and we can help you attend our virtual programs from a computer in the library.

Thank you to those who so generously donated to the UnderAware Underwear drive as part of the Great Give Back program. If you are able, please help us with our Veterans drive and our Masks & Mittens drive in the upcoming months. I know this has been a very difficult time for many people. If there is anything that 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 holiday season!

– Joanne Adam, Library Director



Huntington Public Library, in partnership with the Northport VA Center, is having a November Drive to help our local Veterans.

We are looking to collect NEW, packaged toiletry items such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, brushes, and combs. The Medical Center is also in need of NEW tee shirts (size large) socks, hats and gloves.

All donations will go directly to the Inpatient Program and the Homeless Veteran Program at the Northport VA Medical Cente

Please drop off your donations in the red, white and blue box in our lobby at the Main Building. We hope to be able to provide these items to the VA Medical Center by the beginning of December.

1000 Books before Kindergarten
1000 Books before Kindergarten

Can you read 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!

Help your child develop a love of reading. They will even earn prizes along the way.
