FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, March 13, 2020
The Hauppauge Public Library, its Board of Trustees, and Administration have been closely monitoring all developments pertaining to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. It has been determined effective March 13, 2020 at 5 pm to be necessary to close all library facilities until Saturday, March 21 in order to protect the health and well-being of our guests and staff.
The Library fully appreciates and understands the disappointment and disruption that this action will cause, but finds that it is paramount to preserve to the greatest extent possible the safety of our guests and staff during this declared state of emergency. Please consult the Library’s website and social media accounts to developments relating to the Library’s operations. We apologize for the inconvenience resulting from the closing; and look forward to a resumption of services to the community when warranted.
Please remember the Library provides a wide array of online services, including free ebooks, audiobooks, movies, magazines and more. You can access these resources right from the Library website https://www.hauppaugelibrary.org/.
If you have holds that are ready for pick-up, they will be held for you until the closure period has ended.
All Library cards that are nearing their expiration dates in March will be renewed until June of this year.
