If you’ve heard all the buzz about ebooks but still aren’t sure if they’re for you, come to the Library’s Dix Hills building. We’ll let you play around with an iPad, color Nook, and the Kobo Reader. You can try reading an ebook on each one and see which you like best. If you need some instruction on a device you are considering, or already own, call 498-1224 and set up an appointment with Ellen.
In support of the 10th anniversary of 9/11, ebrary is offering open access to a collection of relevant e-books through September. We hope that this collection provides a valuable resource to anyone seeking to learn or understand more about this tragic event, or reflect on its world impact.

Those long summer days are looming ahead, and we’d like to recommend you reserve a museum pass from the Library’s website, hhhlibrary.org. These passes provide free admission to some of the area’s most popular museums. Visit the American Museum of Natural History for the famous dinosaurs and dioramas, or the Children’s museums of Manhattan or Long Island. If it’s a beautiful summer day you can be on the Intrepid and learning in the Sea, Air, and Space museum. The Firefighter’s Museum, the Whaling Museum, and the Old Westbury Gardens are some other choices too.
The Library’s mission is to encourage life-long learning, and that means school vacation learning too! These passes provide free admission to some of the area’s most popular museums. All you need to reserve a pass is your valid Adult HHH library card.
