Need a place to meet a friend for a cup of coffee? A place to meet with your tutor or just sink into a comfy chair and read a magazine? Then the Library’s Upstairs Gallery is the perfect place for you! Over the last several months, the Gallery has transformed into a warm, welcoming community space. Special thanks to the Cutchogue-New Suffolk Historical Council for their generous donation towards funding the new shelving that houses our ever-expanding local history collection. Our coffee station serves coffee made with Starbucks beans as well as a variety of specialty drinks. So, whether you visit to take in the latest art show (see back page for current art exhibits) or need to work on a group project, this multipurpose space offers various seating & workspace options (plus a strong Wi-Fi signal!) to suit your needs.
The Holiday season has arrived in Cutchogue and New Suffolk! We hope that you make the Library part of your holiday tradition by visiting us often. Starting in December, come delight in the Library’s festive decorations – which will provide the perfect photo backdrop for holiday photos! While you are here, enjoy a cup of hot cocoa in the Upstairs Gallery while the kids search for the secretly hidden elves throughout the Library to earn a prize. In the spirit of the season, the Library will be a drop off location for CAST’s Toy Drive as well as offer our annual Giving Tree on which you may hang new or handmade mittens, gloves, scarves and hats that will be donated to local charities. Additionally, the Library will have a table set up where you can take a moment to write a thank you note in support of our troops. Be sure not to miss our “Build a Snowman” interactive display – as we ask the community to come together in helping in creating this very “noteworthy” snowman. And as become a favorite custom, the Library will offer free hot apple cider during the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day.

Autumn and the harvest season has arrived on the North Fork! In addition to pumpkin and apple picking, we hope you will add a visit to the Library to your list of “must dos” this fall. We have a full calendar with events for the entire family. Read on to learn more about of our highlighted events.
What a great summer we are having at our Library! Some highlights were the bus trip to Coney Island, sake and sushi tasting at Stirling Sake, the flat bottom boat tour at the L.I. Aquarium and Bubblemania on the Village Green! In addition to these great events, our Library is seeing a record number of participants in our summer reading programs.
Thanks to generous donors, the Library was able to install new outside furniture, plant two memorial trees in honor of Laura Plimpton and the Berzofsky family as well as begin the remodeling of our Upstairs Gallery. Keep an eye out for new, comfortable lounge seating and a self-service coffee station. Special thanks to the Cutchogue-New Suffolk Historical Council for a donation that will allow us to install custom shelving in the Gallery for Local History materials.
If you would like support the Library with a donation to honor a loved one, please stop in or give me a call at 631-734-6360 and I would be happy to discuss it with you. Thank you for making our Library the vibrant, bustling center of the community.
