Board President's Message:

As Albert Einstein once said, “The only thing that you absolutely have to know, is the location of the library!” It is with great enthusiasm that we invite you to visit 381 East Main Street, East Islip, the address of our wonderful library! Here you will find a vast collection of books and a multitude of programs that are designed for children, teens and adults, to foster lifelong learning. Our library is a fabulous place to expand one’s mind and to inspire you! The dedicated staff continues to research innovative ideas to enhance our facility with interesting products in line with the digital age. The new streaming media platform that we hope to launch in early 2020 is, “hoopla digital.” This “is a one-stop-shop for all things digital entertainment! “hoopla” offers library cardholders instant access to over seven hundred thousand titles and growing across 6 formats: Audiobooks, eBooks, Comics/Graphic Novels, Movies, Television, and Music. “hoopla” allows patrons to stream or download any title for free with a valid library card. Patrons will not experience the frustration of holds or a waiting list, as hoopla provides simultaneous access to all titles on the service.” At the heart of every strong community is the public library offering many classes, book discussions, films, exercise activities, concerts, free museum passes, art shows, day trips to New York City, technology services and lessons, as well as volunteer opportunities, to name just a few services. The library is a resource center to nourish your mind and a place to strengthen connections and relationships with our residents! On behalf of the entire library staff and the Board of Trustees we look forward to seeing you take advantage of all the resources that are available to you!
-Thank you, Deborah Y. Smith, Ed.D.
