The Building is Closed; The Library is Open!

Hello Sag Harbor,

John Jermain bought a 3D printer! We have joined a county-wide initiative with other libraries and the Suffolk Cooperative Library System to create a “print farm” making face shields for healthcare workers at Stony Brook Hospital. Our new 3D printer will be at SCLS working hard to protect Long Island’s medical staff during the COVID-19 crisis, after which it will be housed at the library.

We’ve also expanded our online programs, book clubs, tutoring, story times and exercise classes. If you are on our email-list, you will receive an email each Sunday evening with details for the week ahead. We’re still learning, but it has been a lot of fun!  Let me know if you need help accessing these events.

Our FAQ page is updated daily—and we have given out many, many new library cards. Our COVID-19 Sag Harbor Archive is also updated daily. Please contribute thoughts, photos, videos, even take-out menus. Years from now, our collective resilience will be remembered.

The building, though closed, is also in good hands, thanks to our Facilities Manager Richard Browning. I was at work yesterday, as I am most days, and was moved beyond measure to realize the extent of Richard’s care as our “wind ’em every other day” grandfather clocks struck noon.  When we reopen, please take a look at these two beauties.  Both were crafted here in Sag Harbor and, like our community, they are still going strong.
Catherine Creedon, Director
