  • Improve your child's reading skills - bring them in to read to therapy dogs, Alfie or Angela.  These dogs have been trained to sit quietly and listen. This program runs until the end of May.  Alfie is available every Wednesday from 4:45 - 5:10 p.m., and Angela is available every Thursday from 4:45 - 5:15 p.m.  Register in-person or call 631.941.4080 ext. 123 and pick a specific date and time. There are many benefits including: - A  relaxed atmosphere - No pressure or judgement - dogs have a lot more patience than a human listener might when the child reads slowly or struggles with a word - Confidence and a boost in self-esteem for the child - And who doesn't love seeing a dog in the library?!

  • We're pleased to announce that we are a  recipient of a $10,000 Bullet Aid Grant from New York State Senator John J. Flanagan (2nd Senate District).  The money was used to create a new state-of-the-art Technology Center on the lower level of the library. The renovated Technology Center now boasts three Vizio 55" wall mounted smart televisions, which have the ability to mirror the display of the instructor's machine, Apple TV and any other HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) capable hardware. This makes following along with an instructor very easy.  Each television is also equipped with a floor level HDMI port for easy access to gaming systems or other external input devices. For students, there are ten Dell computers with 23" LCD monitors now
