Letter from the Director

Dear Residents,
Volatility, unpredictability, the weather, market forces, the impact of technology: through all of these moments, your library is a constant, reliable resource. Sure, we have adopted and adapted to technology when it serves your likes and needs. eBooks, online resources, a website, a mobile application, and 24/7 access to programs and resources are standard business practices today. But, so are friendliness, a comfortable chair by the fireplace on a cold day, and a plethora of good books, movies, and magazines to discover and enjoy.

Letter from the Director

Dear Residents,
What’s next? My New Year’s resolutions include the usual: lose 10 pounds, exercise, eat healthier, spend time with family, learn a language, write handwritten letters, and, of course, make time to read more. The turning of the calendar from one year to the next gives us a moment to reflect, remember, and recognize our accomplishments and the resolutions left behind. We resolve to do better, begin our diet on Monday, and exercise in the morning.

Letter from the Director

Dear Residents,
The trend is clear: our lifestyles have shifted from stationary to mobile; from home and hearth to wheels and web. Your librarians see this change as a terrific opportunity to extend our programs and resources in new ways. On November 1, we launched our first Apple and Android-compatible app. From your phone, tablet, or other mobile device you will have easy access to collections, downloads, program registration, room bookings, and so much more.

Letter from the Director

Dear Residents,
The weathermen sure can predict a heat wave, and this summer has been a record breaker.

Fortunately, it’s also been a record breaker in your library’s Children’s Room. The librarians predicted the “Dig Into Reading” program would be a success, and they were right. This summer, hundreds of children read thousands of pages; plus, they learned about our natural world of wonder found all around us in the air, land, and water.

Letter from the Director

Dear Residents,
Your public library is the one place with something for everyone. From toddler time to yoga, best sellers to eBooks, tax forms to homework help, rooms for group meetings to rooms for art, music, films, and lectures, your free library card is the key.

Letter from the Director

Dear Residents,
As I write this, your library is hosting the CSH Civic Association with guest speaker Dr. William Spencer, Suffolk County Legislator, there is a meeting of the CSH Lacrosse Club, students are doing assignments, and people of all ages are using the computers and borrowing material. We see every day that the library means different things to each of you. For some, it’s a quiet refuge from a hectic day; for others, it’s a gathering place to listen, learn, and linger.
