Pandemic protocols are in place at every library in Suffolk and Nassau counties. This means libraries may close, may limit access, and may request visitors limit the duration of their visits. For the time being, it's advisable to call ahead to make sure the library is open. And, what if you don't feel like driving in? No problem, because most are offering home delivery services!
It is also tax season, and many libraries are offering community tax clinics from now through mid-April. This may increase foot traffic and limit access. However, it's also a great opportunity to ask those last-minute tax questions you may have.
We invite you to contact us when you are ready to learn more about the homes we have for sale. It's our pleasure to tell you more about the communities we serve and help you find the perfect home for you and your family.
