The Hauppauge Public Library strives to meet the educational, informational and entertainment needs of the residents of the Islip Town portion of the Hauppauge School District. The library meets these needs by providing popular materials and high interest services, in a variety of formats, on a wide array of topics of both general and specific interest to community residents. The Hauppauge Public Library is a special district public library established by Chapter 853 of the Laws of New York State 1966 and by Chapter 515 of the Laws of New York State 1971. The Hauppauge Public Library was created by a vote of its service community on October 3, 2000 and was granted a provisional charter by the New York State Board of Regents on December 15, 2000.
The library’s application for a permanent charter and registration is pending with the New York State Board of Regents. The library is funded primarily through local tax assessments and receives some supplemental income through grants, contributions, fees and interest payments. The library has a set of bylaws that govern the library’s structure and an extensive set of policies that govern the library’s operations. The Hauppauge Public Library is currently located in approximately 12,000 square feet.
