Eye Glasses
Millions living in low and middle income countries lack access to basic eye care services. The Library collects usable glasses to support a not-for-profit program. Donate eyeglasses at the drop box on the Circulation desk. Accepted are sunglasses, prescription, and reading glasses with both plastic and metal frames (no cases please).

The Library’s Little Free Pantry is run entirely on donations from our community. Donate, or help yourself, to non-perishables. Donations are accepted year-round.

The Library has partnered with Long Island Cares to offer two services: a year-round community food drive, and a monthly distribution of non-perishable food. Donation boxes are located across from the Circulation Desk. Bags of non-perishable items are distributed in our parking lot on the second Thursday of every month from 10 – 11 AM while supplies last. No ID necessary and no identifying questions are asked.

Long Island Cares endeavors to feed more than 280,000 hungry Long Islanders. Over 5,600 pounds of food were collected at the Library in 2021.

Handmade Projects
The Library accepts handmade items and donates them to local organizations. Click here for a list of project guidelines.

RSVP Suffolk’s Community Connections Program (CCCP) accepts Windows laptops under 5 years old which they clear, refurbish, and install in the homes of financially challenged individuals. Drop off your laptop at the library and a representative of CCCP will collect it. Click here for more information.

Toys for Tots of Suffolk County each year provides a drop off box for new, unwrapped toys in the Library’s main lobby, with collection taking place in late October through mid December. This program, run by the U.S. Marine Corp Reserve, delivers a message of hope to our less fortunate youngsters.

Tree of Warmth
Each Winter, beginning on December 1 through January 31, the community is invited to drop off donations of new winter hats, gloves, mittens and scarves for both children and adults. Socks are also welcome on the tree. These items are donated to a variety of local non-profit agencies working with our neighbors in need.

eWaste Recycling

Paper Shredding
Each year a shredding truck will be available for on-site shredding of personal documents. We cannot accept binders, plastic, cardboard, carbon paper, hanging files, newspaper, magazines, commercial papers, or wet papers.

Prescription Drug Disposal
Each year the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office will be on site to collect unused prescriptions to be safely discarded with no questions asked and no personal information required.

Recyclable Glass Drop-Off Program
Drop glass bottles and jars (no lids or caps, please) into the designated glass recycling bins in the back of the Library parking lot. Reminder: glass is no longer accepted in residential curbside recycling. (In partnership with the Town of Brookhaven).
