Students in the Hauppauge School District can borrow books for their summer required reading assignment from the library. To check if a book is available, or to place a hold, take a look at the catalog. If you’d prefer to read an e-book or listen to an audiobook, check OverDrive. If you have a Hauppauge Library Card, you may also find your books available through Hoopla or Cloud Library.
