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
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!
Help the Huntington Public Library help our community by donating NEW mittens, gloves and masks to keep hands warm and faces safe this winter.
All donations will be placed on The Mitten Tree at the Main building, and later donated to the Helping Hand Rescue Mission in Huntington Station. Only NEW and SEALED masks will be accepted.
Donations can be dropped off until Wednesday, December 30. For more information contact Adult Reference Services at: 631-427-5165, ext. 173, or email us at .

Curbside Pickup Rules and Guidelines
We have instituted new technologies to limit contact between staff and the public to keep our staff and patrons safe. Currently, if you have the HPL mobile app you can download your barcode to limit contact in your future library transactions.
