Slideshow: Grat Libraries of the World

Dear Neighbor,
While the building project at 201 Main Street continues its reach for the stars, garnering press and conversation, my colleagues at our interim location are involved in another type of construction, quietly building community. In 2014 we expanded our programming, adding more senior services, free tutoring for local students, and more weekend activities for families. We provided answers to reference questions, lots of tech help, genealogical information, local history material, resources on the Affordable Health Care Act, and all sorts of different answers for those of you who wanted to know if we could recommend a good book—or e-book.

The work we do at John Jermain is part of a tradition of strong public libraries across America.  And when I unlock our door each morning, I do so with thoughts of the courageous staff in Ferguson, Missouri who kept the library open when schools and business closed, and the diverse staff at New York Public Library who serve a city of millions, and the single librarian in my small hometown who taught me to love ideas with a passion that transcended the books on her shelves.

In this season of giving, please support the library that has made a difference in your life, wherever it is.  And if that library is John Jermain, you can make a tax-deductible donation to our Annual Appeal online at  our secure donations page, or by mail to the address below.

I look forward to seeing you soon,

Catherine Creedon, Director

The John Jermain Memorial Library is the public library in Sag Harbor, NY. Founded in 1910, the library building and initial collection was a gift from Margaret Olivia Slocum Sage to the people of Sag Harbor. From June 2011 to July 2013 the library will be located at 34 W. Water St., in Sag Harbor, while our historic building is renovated and expanded.
