Founded in 1938 as a Blue Point P.T.A. project, the Blue Point Public Library began with a collection of donated books. When the Bayport and Blue Point school districts joined forces in 1952, the library became the Bayport-Blue Point Public Library. Until 1970, the library was staffed entirely by volunteers, one of the last all-volunteer libraries in the state. The present character of the library owes much to those early volunteers, whose dedication and expertise laid a solid foundation for the book collection and the philosophy of community service. Over the years, the library has grown in size and sophistication.
Today it offers not only books, but videotapes, compact discs, and recorded books as well. A well-staffed reference department, equipped with up-to-date computer communication, is able to retrieve from many sources outside the library walls. With its meeting rooms offering a broad range of public programs, the library has become a cultural center of rare quality for a community of this size, and one in which the local citizens can take great pride.
