Budget Presentation and Meet the Candidate Night





From the Director’s Desk

joanne 2019

Dear Patrons:

COVID19 Library

We are very happy to be open to the public again but are still very conscious of the social distancing that needs to be done, as well as the continuation of wearing masks in public. We are abiding by state and local guidelines to keep our patrons and staff safe in this COVID-19 environment. As we slowly re-open, we have not yet begun in-house programming. We expect to offer some outdoor programming over the summer so we can see some of our patrons face to face again! For those who are not comfortable coming into the library, we are still offering curbside pickup and home delivery. Please call the library if you need more information.

Our Trustee Election will take place with the School District’s Budget Vote on May 18, 2021 at Huntington High School. Due to the trying times of this past year, and the economic situation many are facing today, the Board of Trustees has decided not to ask for an increase in library taxes this year. We will not be voting on a library budget but will only have a trustee election. I hope you will take the time to vote on May 18th.

We continue to strive to bring you the best library service we can, while keeping the safety of our patrons and staff in mind. Wishing you all good health in the coming days. Please feel free to reach out to me with any comments or concerns you may have via email at or by phone at (631) 427-5165 ext. 206. Thank you!

Warm Regards,

– Joanne Adam, Library Director

Dear Huntington Library Patrons and Community:

These are still very uncertain times as we feel the effects of the COVID virus in our everyday lives. We believe it is in the best interest of both patrons and staff to limit the amount of interaction with people right now and limit the amount of time, if any, that patrons spend in the library.
