Out of an abundance of caution for the safety of our community & to help limit the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), the library will remain closed until further notice. We are unaware of any confirmed COVID-19 cases originating at the library. 

During this time, patrons may keep their library materials at home without late fines. There is no need to return items during the building closure. Remember the Library provides a wide array of online services, including free ebooks, audiobooks, movies, magazines and more, available 24/7. 

A Message from the Library Director 3/22/20

Dear Community Members:


First let me say, on behalf of our board of trustees, administration and staff, we hope you are well and will continue to remain so.  For anyone who is not, we hope you are receiving the best care possible and are feeling better soon.


It is the mission of the South Huntington Public Library to strengthen our community by fostering connections, satisfying curiosity and inspiring creativity.  A tall order in these difficult times. However, we remain dedicated to the mission, in whatever way we are able to do so. Our staff is working behind the scenes to do all we can to serve you.


When you visit our website, you will find a series of FAQs to help with the more commonly asked questions.  We have added a blogging feature to the homepage so we can easily update you on any new information we may have. We continue to use social media to connect on our adult, young adult and children’s pages.  Please take advantage of the vast array of online resources that are available to you. Take a class, learn a language, try a new craft or download a book. We are working on offering virtual programming options for the community going forward and will let you know when that becomes available.


Most importantly, in these times, our staff will continue to rely on our core values of connection, awareness, respect and empathy as we navigate this current health crisis. We truly care about our community and look forward to opening our doors wide and welcoming you all inside once again.



Janet Scherer

Library Director
