As a member of the Quogue Library Society you will have that personal
sense of satisfaction knowing that you have helped your library carry
forward its mission to inform, inspire, entertain and challenge all who
enter its doors.
Since its founding in 1896, the Quogue Library
has been more than a building that houses a collection of books. From
the day a row of donated volumes contributed by local women was placed
on a shelf in Jessup’s Store, the Library has served as a community
meeting place, a resource for learning and sharing through a variety
of programs, a retreat for quiet reading and research, and the inspiration
for generations of readers who have learned to love books through our
children’s story hours. The Library’s value to the community
is evidenced by the support of local citizens whose generosity has enabled
the Library to grow and expand its services over the years. Now, thanks
to the most recent expansion and refurbishment, the Library is ready
to serve patrons in the Information Age while retaining the architectural
charm and historical ambiance that makes reading, browsing or just relaxing
in its comfortable rooms such a pleasure. With over 100 years of continuous
service to the community, the Library remains a resource for all ages.
