Keep The Library Open Later


The Westbury library closes on Saturday at 1 p.m. when other libraries are open until 5 p.m. This happens every Saturday during July and August.

I tried every thing I could to make it possible for the library to be open later, but no luck. Also, I checked with the mayor of Westbury to no avail, he claims it is out of his jurisdiction.

It is too late for this summer, yet next summer we will try once again to have the library open on Saturday until 5 p.m. Thank you to the people of Westbury and Carle Place who signed the petitions. With your continued support and help hopefully next summer we will have the Westbury library open later on Saturday.

Finally, the library is also a cooling center, especially for all the seniors of Westbury and Carle Place. If you have any questions regarding this letter, call me at 333-7019 and leave me a message. Let’s get this small problem solved.
