New Library Director Appointed
The Trustees of the Half Hollow Hills Community Library are pleased to announce the appointment of Helen M. Crosson as our new Library Director. Helen will join the HHHCL staff on January 12.
A resident of Oyster Bay, Helen will be coming to us from the Cold Spring Harbor Library, where she has served as Director since 1999. Under her energetic and innovative leadership, that library moved from a 7,000-square-foot space in a rented school building to a new 27,000-square-foot building on New York State parkland overlooking Cold Spring Harbor. Before working at the CSH Library, Helen spent 11 years at the Great Neck Library, where she served as a reference librarian, network administrator and Internet trainer.
Helen is a graduate of Siena College and earned a Master of Library and Information Science degree at the State University of New York at Albany. She also received a Master of Public Administration degree from C.W. Post.
Helen's many community activities include service on the Leadership Huntington Foundation.
We look forward to welcoming Helen to Half Hollow Hills in January and we know that Helen looks forward to meeting you all.

Suffolk County Library System Upgrade
The Suffolk County Library System will have a computer system upgrade on Monday, December 8, 2014. On that day most online library services will not be available to the public. You will be able to search the catalog from home, and use the library’s public computers. You will not be able to access databases, place holds, register for programs or download from Overdrive.
If you wish to check out items on December 8th you must bring your library card. Driver’s licenses will not be accepted. Check out will be limited to 4 items per family. Service should be restored on Tuesday, December 9th but we cannot guarantee that everything will be up and running. Please plan your library needs ahead of time. We appreciate your patience as we undergo this major upgrade to our county system.
