Hello to all and happy autumn.  As we transition from summer to fall, I hope you continue turning to Quogue Library as a resource for knowledge, socializing, programs, or simply a reading hideaway. 

This summer was a very busy time for us. We spent a beautiful afternoon with the Quogue community commemorating the library’s 125th anniversary with an old-fashioned country fair celebration. We increased the volume of in-house programs and saw a record number of people join our reading clubs. Library usage expanded widely; whether it was patrons utilizing our quiet rooms, interacting at educational workshops inside the Innovation Lab, or playing in our Children’s Activity Center. The staff and I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the community so engaged.

I’d like to thank Ellen de Saint Phalle for coordinating a wonderful group of authors and Andrew Botsford for moderating our Summer Author Series. 

To the Quogue community, I thank you for your continued support of all we do at the library. I wish everyone good health in the coming days and look forward to making the fall season another special one at the Quogue Library. 

Warmest regards,

Susan McKenna
