A heart-felt thank you to the whole community for participating in a summer filled with library programs, and special thanks to the many volunteers who helped out in countless ways.

There were over 100 programs, special shows, events and occasions held both onsite and at different venues: Founders Beach for “Super Beach Bingo”, Greenport School Athletic Fields for “Disc Dogs”, Greenport’s Preston’s Dock for “Cruising on the Glory”, Stony Brook University for “Battle of the Books”, Southold Elementary School’s

Garden for “Sushi from the Garden”, and Southold Yacht Club for “A-Sailing We Will Go!”. In our own Pocket Park, friends, family, and patrons gathered as a reading bench was dedicated to and in memory of Fortuna Maney, a valued 20-year library employee. We were an enthusiastic presence marching along Main Road in the Southold Village Merchants July 4th Parade, popping-up at area beaches under a tent with library handouts, and throwing the first pitch at the North Fork Osprey’s July 13 baseball game! Fall is here and there is still a lot happening at your Library! Come in today.

Welcome to new President Dr. David Robinson!

Thank you, Maggie! Maggie Merrill has been a member of the Library Board since 2005. She was elected President in 2011, and served in that position until August 2016.

To begin, I would like to thank Maggie Merrill for her amazing stewardship of the Southold Library as president for the last 5 years. Thanks to Maggie, the library board past and present, Caroline and her amazing staff, and most importantly our patrons, the library is in a position to enhance your library experience. I am happy to report that our new, user friendly website will be up and running by the end of this year. Its streamlined design and increased options will be only a small part of the new site. For our patrons who visit the library, we are pleased to inform you that progress continues in our renovation plans and we hope to deliver more good news on this front in the near future. Finally, I want to thank you for your continued support of the Southold Library. Sincerely, David Robinson

Initially as a member of the Long Range Planning Committee, and then as President, Maggie has been instrumental in structuring the Library’s programs and services for 21st century users. In addition, she played an important role in planning for the changing needs of the facility to meet the new and many ways people use libraries today. We have Maggie to thank for taking the lead during these important years in the Library’s history. She will be missed!

A New Face

Brooke Averette, a student at Southold High School, has joined our staff as a Page. We’re glad to have her on board.


A fond farewell and best wishes are extended to recent high school graduate and college bound Theresa Connolly (University of Georgia).
