When the Library is closed you may return materials you have borrowed in the book drop for your convenience. Please be aware that materials returned the day they are due after the Library is closed are considered late and late fees will be applied to your Library account.
*Due to Covid-19, all items must be returned in the outside book drop to be quarantined for 3 days before they can be returned to circulation. All items will be backdated once checked in.
Go over by our copy machines to scan to e-mail or scan to USB. Our fax machine is located behind the Circulation Desk. It costs $1 per page to fax. You will receive a confirmation page once your fax is completed.
If we do not own an item that you are looking for, we may be able to borrow it from another library for you. You may request items on your own via the catalog from a library in Suffolk County or from Nassau County as an "INN Reach" hold. You may also request a librarian place a hold on an item for you by phone or in-person.
With our new MobilePrint Service™, you can use your personal computer or mobile device to print to the library’s printers from anywhere. Simply submit documents for printing and come to the library to release and pick up your document. Print jobs stay in the queue until closing. Color prints cost 25 cents per page and black and white prints are 10 cents a page.
