Art Gallery Gets New Sign


Thanks to a donation from the Friends of the Library, the art gallery on the Lower Level is once again identified with its official name, the Alfred Van Loen Gallery.

Mr. Van Loen, a local resident, sculptor and educator, was curator of the library's art exhibits in the Melville Road building from 1969-1976. After he died in 1993, library trustees named that library's Community Room, which doubled as the art gallery/exhibit space, in his memory. When that building closed and the Pidgeon Hill Road library opened in 2004, the new gallery was also named in his honor.

Many thanks also go out to Beatty Harvey & Assoc., building architects, who donated their time and skills to design and provide the specifications for the new sign.

The unveiling of the sign took place at the opening of the September exhibit. Pictured at the event are (from left) Library Board President John Eberhardt, gallery Curator Deborah Katz; Kate Rea, vice president of the Friends of the Library, and Library Director Joe Latini.

Thank you!


The Friends of the South Huntington Library purchased daffodil bouquets for (from left) Marie Pinto, Kathleen Williams-Ging and Barbara Lumsden, in recognition of their service to the library. The flowers were purchased through the American Cancer Society's Daffodil Days program.
