The Williston Park Library is again partnering with LI Cares/16th Assembly District’s Legislative annual pet drive. The drive, which will run during the month of April, will help local soup kitchens and food pantries meet the needs of struggling families with pets. The most needed items are bags of dry dog and cat food, canned dog and cat food, cat box litter, treats, and toys. All food must be unopened and in its original packaging.

A donation box will be available inside the Library. Thank you for your support.

Our Daily Hours Are:

Open for Browsing: Monday-Friday: 10am-5:30pm
Vestibule Pick-Up: Monday-Friday: 10am-5:30pm
Browsing & Vestibule Pickup: Saturday: 10am-4pm

“Open for Browsing” means you can come inside, walk around the Library, and look for books and other items. Please limit your time to 1 hour. Only one family at a time will be permitted in the Children’s Room.

Items requested over the phone can be picked up in the Library vestibule.

Please maintain social distancing practices while in the Library.

All customers and staff are required to wear face coverings at all times while in the Library, per Executive Order 202.17. Face coverings must cover both your mouth and nose.

Congregating is not permitted.

Three computers are available for public use for a limit of 30 minutes.

Please return items in the outside book drops. For safety reasons, we cannot accept items returned inside the Library!
