A Message from the Director

joanne 2019

Dear Patrons:

Happy Holidays

As a new year begins, I think we can all agree that we are ready to turn the page and begin a new chapter in our lives with hopes and dreams that better days are coming. Although the library is offering programs and services a little differently, we are still here to assist you in wherever your interests lie. Perhaps you can learn a new skill, visit a new place, try a new food, set a new goal, and achieve a new accomplishment! Maybe you have already learned how to Zoom! This past year has certainly been a challenging one and I continue to offer my thanks for your ongoing cooperation and understanding.

Despite all the hardships of this past year, our community continues to show its compassion and generosity by repeatedly filling our donation bins. Our Masks & Mittens Tree was overflowing with donations and we made several trips to drop off donations for our Veterans. I cannot thank you enough for your contributions.

I know this continues to be a 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 .

A new year is like a blank notebook and the pen is in our hands. This is our chance to write a beautiful story for ourselves. Let’s make it a good one! Wishing you all a very happy and healthy new year!

– Joanne Adam, Library Director


Huntington: Documenting the Pandemic

Documenting the Pandemic

Huntington Public Library is pleased to announce, Huntington: Documenting the Pandemic, a new archive project established to collect, preserve, and make available the daily life and activities of living in Huntington during this unprecedented moment in history.

The entire Huntington community is encouraged to contribute to the archive to ensure an inclusive record of the experience for future generations of researchers. Interviews, first-hand accounts, flyers, photographs, and more will be important sources to consult in the future to study, interpret, and derive meaning from this once in a lifetime event. For more information, please contact Teresa Schwind at 631-427-5165 ext. 202 or .

Please note that some tax information, especially from brokerage firms, may not be sent to you until the end of February. Returns will be prepared in about a week and emailed to taxpayers who must approve them before the returns are e-filed. AARP Tax-Aide is administered by the AARP Foundation, in cooperation with the IRS. Electronic filing (e*filing) is included. You MUST bring your current tax records and copies of your last filed federal and state tax returns. All persons listed on the tax return must be present and MUST bring a photo ID and a Social Security card. Call 631-427-5165 ext. 251, or 122, for complete information and to make a reservation.   Registration required. HPL cardholders only for the first week; after that, appointments are open to all.

AARP Tax-Aide is a free tax counseling and preparation service, helping low and middle-income taxpayers, with special attention to people ages 60 years and older.
AARP Tax Aide volunteers cannot prepare returns that include rental property, military income, alternative minimum tax, or those with many stock transactions.
