Public Library District
Thinking Big About Library Services
Beyond traditional services -- lending books, music and movies -- we offer a quick list of library services : better known, lesser known, and downright unusual.  Fun stuff!

Energy Meters
Borrow an energy meter and use the meter to determine how much power your home appliances or gizmos and gadgets consume.  Use these as a stepping-off point and take the Neighbor to Neighbor Energy Challenge!

Sign Up for Emergency Alerts
If you don't own a computer, stop by the library to sign up for East Hampton Alerts Townwide Notification System.  If you're not computer savvy, we can help you navigate the sign-up process.

Museum Passes
Visit a premier museum or attraction for free or at discount off regular admission.

Art Prints
If you are home-staging, would like to enhance your office decor, or are otherwise looking for a change of view, the library lends art-to-go.  Most of our art-to-go selections were created by local artists.

Early Childhood Literacy Kits
Does your kiddo like fish? Bears? Big rigs or trains?  Try one of our multimedia kits which include a variety of theme-related books and media materials.

Sear's Park Stickers
Purchase a Sears Park sticker for your automobile, watercraft/boat, or both during any of the library's 51 public service hours.

Book Club Support
If you're running a local book club, the library can help you obtain multiple copies of your club's selected reads, subject to availability. Phone the library for information on how to get started.

Video Games
Find a growing collection of video games for Wii, PS3, and X-Box 360.
