2018 marks the fifth year that Patchogue-Medford Library will be hatching baby chicks!

Here at the Patchogue-Medford Library, our current newsletter has a running theme of “empowerment.” Most people do not automatically think of children when they hear that word but childhood is a great place to start planting those tools into a child’s mind.
How can the Library encourage child empowerment? The ultimate keyword is: education. Through educating and nurturing the minds of our young patrons, we are empowering them for the future. The Library has a wide variety of programs for children that enable their development, from our earliest play programs for babies and toddlers to our STEM/STEAM programs for school-aged children, from our Student Success Series for homework help to our sensory friendly programs.
The gloves, the hats and the heavy coats are out of storage. Let’s not forget the boots! While you are bundled up, come to the library and spend time with family and friends at the following programs. Let’s have some fun with the children and grandparents!
