Join Our Newest Reading Club:
1000 Books before Kindergarten!
1000 Books before Kindergarten!
 

Research shows that children get ready to read years before they start school so this is the first step in encouraging your child to love books. 1000 may sound like a big number, but if you read just one book a night for three years, you'll have read even more than 1000! So come into the library, pick up a kit (available at the Main’s Youth & Parent Services Reference Desk or the Station Branch Reference Desk), and help your child develop a love of reading. They will even earn prizes along the way

150th Anniversay Kickoff

historical1

The Huntington Public Library and Town of Huntington have partnered up to present the commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the end of the Civil War. Our kickoff event and reception will be this Friday, April 17th, 6pm-8pm at the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Building, 228 Main Street Huntington Village.

Join us as we acknowledge Huntington’s Civil War soldiers and learn what this Town’s role was during this time period. Presenters include Huntington Town Historian, Robert Hughes, Huntington Town Clerk, Jo-Ann Raia as well as Chaplin George Munkenbeck of the 14th Brooklyn Regiment NYSM Society of NY, Co H. In addition, students from Huntington High School and Cold Spring Harbor High Schools will be presenting dramatic readings of letters sent home to loved ones. Patty Foos, a descendant of a soldier from Huntington, will be our special guest.

Don’t’ forget to step inside the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Building for an outstanding civil war exhibit! Refreshments provided by the Friends of the Huntington Public Library.
