Closings and Holidays
Harborfields Public Library cards are issued to residents of Harborfields Central School District. To join the library and obtain a library card you must apply in person at the circulation desk and bring two forms of identification (one with a photo) to prove residency. A library card entitles its holder to all services of the Harborfields Public Library plus varying borrowing privileges at any other Suffolk County public library. Your library card will be valid for three years, at which time you will need to verify proof of residency to renew your library card.
A fax machine is available for public use in the Reference Room. The fee per outgoing fax is $2.00 (up to 15 pages). The fee for an incoming fax is $1.00 per page received, including any cover sheets.
Most materials circulate for 21 days. New DVD's circulate for 3 days - they are due back by closing time on the third day.
