PROJECT HELP (HEALTHY LIBRARIES, a project in collaboration with Stony Brook University)

Stony Brook University Schools of Health Sciences

Project HELP is back! Interns from the Stony Brook University Schools of Health Sciences will be back to answer your health-related questions and provide information about best practices for healthy living! All programs will be conducted online and ZOOM info is listed with each program below.

Three different types of services are provided through Project HELP:

      1. One on One appointments:
        Do you or a loved one need help: finding resources in your community, finding reliable health information, filling out paperwork for social services, finding housing? Do you have questions about medications or a health problem? Would you like to talk with someone? You can meet virtually with students training in public health, nursing and social work. The Stony Brook Medicine Healthy Libraries Program (SBMHeLP program) can help with all of these topics. SBMHeLP is a partnership between Stony Brook Medicine and the Public Libraries of Suffolk County. To schedule a one on one appointment please email us at or call us at 631-216-8220.
      2. Healthy Hour:
        Healthy Hour is an open forum where COVID-19 related questions can be asked. The program will include a 15 minute update on COVID-19 followed by 45 minutes of questions and answers. Ask any question related to COVID-19 whether it has to do with the COVID-19 vaccine, primary prevention, or recovery! Healthy Hours will be held on the following Tuesdays:covid

Huntington Public Library, in partnership with the Northport VA Center, is having a November Drive to help our local Veterans.
joanne 2019

The Huntington Public Library will be collecting useful items for local veterans. We are hoping to collect NEW, packaged toiletry items such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, brushes, and combs. Veterans are also in need of NEW tee shirts (size large) socks, hats and gloves.

In lieu of the continued closing of the volunteer room at the Northport VA Hospital, HPL will now be collecting for General Needs Ltd., a 501c3 organization that is committed to helping and meeting the needs of our local veterans.

Please drop off your donations in the red, white and blue box that we will have set up in our lobby at the Main Building. We hope to be able to provide these items to General Needs for our Veterans!
