From the Director’s Desk

Dear Patrons:

COVID19 Library

Hello and happy autumn! I have always thought of the fall season as a time of new beginnings, possibly stemming from my school days when I vowed each September that this would be my best year ever! As we begin the fall season this year, I have that same feeling of starting anew and making the best of the coming year, but I also find it a very reflective time

Twenty years ago, we endured the horrific 9/11 terrorist attack which has changed the way of the world for us in so many ways. As COVID-19 hit us last year, we again realized our world would never be the same. As we try to ease back into a new normal and try to return to what was, I think we all know that our new normal is still being re-defined.

As you start your own fall season, I hope you will look to the library to help make this your best year ever! If you don’t have a library card, now is the time to get one during Library Card Signup month. If you’re looking for information, your library is the place to find it. If you want to escape from all that is going on for a bit, come check out a good book or join us for a program! Your library is your community center, and we are here for you.

Once again, I thank you for your support, patience and understanding during this time. Wishing you all good health in the coming days. Please feel free to contact me at any time: (631) 427-5165 ext. 206 or by email at .

Warm Regards,

– Joanne Adam, Library Director
