November 2017 Update:

I am pleased to announce that the Grand Opening of our 18 Hauppauge Road Building is scheduled for Saturday, December 2nd at 10:00 a.m. Please bring your family and neighbors to this exciting event where we will be cutting the ribbon so the Commack Public Library community can visit their NEW Library at 18 Hauppauge Road for the very first time. There will be refreshments, entertainments, music, games and prizes and of course, more importantly, tours of your NEW Library throughout the day.

In preparation for this Grand Opening and monumental task of moving thousands of volumes of materials, computers, furniture, technology, shelving, and staff, we are scheduled to be closed in both the temporary location and permanent location from November 18th-December 1st. We so appreciate your patience during this transition and encourage you to use the surrounding libraries including the Elwood Public Library, the Half Hollow Hills Community Library, the Northport-East Northport Library and the Commack Branch of the Smithtown Library. The book and media returns at 6243 Jericho Turnpike will be available through November 30th though you can hold on to any items that are due while we are closed. No fines are being charged during this transition. Please check out our website or call us at 631-499-0888 for more up-to-date information as we get closer to the grand opening. Again, your patience and support is so appreciated by the administration and staff of the Commack Public Library. I look forward to seeing you at the grand opening on Saturday, December 2nd. Normal hours of your Library resume on Sunday, December 3rd.

  • A separate children's room designed to provide an enriching environment for children and families with special, dedicated spaces for computer use, playspace and programs
