[jhan195l.jpg] We no longer have a bookmobile, but our volunteers do deliver books and other items to your home if you are unable to get to the library because of illness, injury or disability. The volunteers normally deliver and pickup on Thursdays, except in the case of inclement weather or when Thursday is a holiday. You can request specific items, or you can let us know of your preferences and a librarian will choose materials for you. Standard circulation rules apply to items borrowed through this program.

To arrange for this service, please call Martha Kahn at 631.549.4411.

What Does The Green Label Mean?


When you enter the adult library area, and see the new books display, there are books with green labels on the spine. These books are in high demand and can be taken out ONLY by South Huntington cardholders. We are using a subscription program called McNaughton Book Service to supply the library with popular titles. As demand warrants we order more copies like Carrie Fisher's Wishful Drinking, Janet Evanovich's Plum Spooky, and John Grisham's The Associate, to name a few.

If you see the call number MCN B FISHER Or MCN F GRISHAM in the library catalog when you search for the latest bestseller, it means that it is located in the new books display area. Don't worry about waiting too long for a popular bestseller, we've got it covered!
