Did you know? If you’re looking for a specific book and no library in either Suffolk or Nassau has it, you can ask the Cold Spring Harbor Library to consider purchasing it.
Should you discover that the book you’re looking for is unavailable, talk to a librarian at the Information Services Desk either in person or via phone at 631-692-6820. The librarian will first look to borrow a copy from another library in either Suffolk or Nassau. If the book still isn’t available, you can ask the librarian to place a purchase request, so that the Library will consider ordering it.
Following this, the Information Services Department will determine whether to buy the book, based on availability, price, and suitability for our collection. If it’s purchased, a hold will be placed on the title for you, and you will be notified when the book comes in.
