National Library Week 2021: Welcome to Your Library
The theme for National Library Week (April 4-10, 2021), “Welcome to Your Library,” promotes the idea that libraries extend far beyond the four walls of a building – and that everyone is welcome to use their services. During the pandemic libraries have been going above and beyond to adapt to our changing world by expanding their resources and continuing to meet the needs of their users. Whether people visit in person or virtually, libraries offer opportunities for everyone to explore new worlds and become their best selves through access to technology, multimedia content, and educational programs.

L.I. Migrant Labor Camps with Mark Torres
Friday April 9, 7:00pm
Long Island Migrant Labor Camps: Dust for Blood is the riveting true account of the migrant labor camps in Suffolk County from their inception during World War II, through their heyday in 1960, and culminating with their steady decline towards the end of the 20th century. The book's author, Mark Torres, will talk about the dark history of the camps including the human suffering of the camps' inhabitants; the cause and effect of the camps; and the factors which led to their eventual decline. Mr. Torres will also cover the heroic efforts of those who were critics of the camps and fought to improve the lives of migrant workers on the eastern end of Long Island during this time period.
