The Carnegie Library of Patchogue is intended for after school use 2:30pm-8:30pm Monday-Friday and Saturday 9:30-5:30, and Sundays from 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm. The Carnegie will also be open for full operational hours when Patchogue-Medford Schools are closed, and the library is open. We are looking forward to offering programs for all ages during the day and on the lawn. The majority of the Teen fiction and graphic novel collection will be moved to the Carnegie Library, but popular titles will be available in both branches. Our staff will also be making regular trips between buildings to make sure our patrons have access to all materials. We always welcome feedback, purchase requests and service requests.
