Hello and happy summer to all! After many months of offering all virtual programs and limited in-library services, we are hoping that the warm summer months will give us a reprieve and we can start getting back to some sort of “normalcy” soon. Due to the uncertainty of times, most of our summer programs are still virtual or are being offered outside. We hope to start planning some in-person programs soon. COVID restrictions are changing quickly, and we are staying on top of the CDC and New York State guidelines as best as we can, keeping in mind the health and safety of all patrons and staff.
Our Summer Reading Club, “Tails and Tales,” has begun for all ages and we hope this helps bring many of you back into the library if you have not been here in a while. For those who are reluctant to come inside, we are still offering Curbside Pickup or Materials by Mail.
Some community-wide events we are offering are a much needed blood drive in July, and our popular shredding program at the Station Branch in August. Every day that passes, I feel we are one day closer to getting back to “normal.” I thank you all for your kindness, support, patience and understanding during this new era of uncertainty. 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 .
