It’s bright and cheery. It’s clean and feels new. It has (limited) water views. It’s air conditioned. It’s in the center of town, near two very busy business: the post office and 7-11. What’s not to like? Our new home at 34 West Water Street (across from and a bit west of the post office) fits us to a tee.
Given the compromises we’ve made to fit into a smaller space, almost everything here is better than expected. We’ve been pleasantly surprised at how well we fit. And, because it’s fun to be in a new location, everyone – staff and patrons alike – seems to be in a perpetual good mood when they’re here.
Our official sign is not up yet, so some folks have had some difficulty finding us. And, since our phone number has not been moved from our original home at 201 Main St. (see previous blog post for more on this), calling us is a definite problem (temporary number: 631-725-0758). But library users are still coming in in large numbers and using all our services…doing everything from checking out books to making photo copies to surfing the internet on our public computers, or via our free WiFi connection.
The photos will give those of you who haven’t stopped by yet a feel of what our new digs are like. But the best way to enjoy this lovely space is to stop by for an in person visit. What are you waiting for?
