Over the past year, we reimagined our library service model so that we could continue to provide innovative services and play a vital role in the Middle Country community. Our goal has always been to enhance the quality of life and to stimulate positive civic engagement for our residents through our wide array of programs and resources, diverse collections, inviting spaces and knowledgeable staff.

All of our services have resumed and we are offering a hybrid approach to accommodate the needs of our community. Whether you prefer in-person or virtual programs, take and makes, curbside assistance, or home delivery, we have provided an option for you.

As part of our message, we include a summary of next year’s budget. The proposed 2022/2023 reflects an increase of .5%, which is below the tax cap limitation. We strive to be financially prudent while providing exemplary services, programs, and resources to remain a steady local employer and as always, your neighborhood library. We hope that you continue to enjoy all that the library offers. Thank you for your ongoing support.

Please contact Sophia Serlis-McPhillips, library director, at 631-585-9393 ext. 219 or email with any questions you may have pertaining to the budget.
