The Carnegie Library has been sitting at its new permanent location next to the Sixth District Court in Patchogue Village since July 17, and work on the building is continuing.
One of the next steps for the building is a public hearing at Patchogue Village Hall, 14 Baker St. in Patchogue, set for Monday at 6 p.m., during which the subdivision of the 150 W. Main St. property will be discussed and likely voted on by the Village Board of Trustees.
Village Attorney Brian Egan said at the July 22 Village Board meeting that the hearing will be about dividing the court property parcel into one that contains the court building and the parking lot, and the other with the Carnegie Library. Egan said once that is accomplished, county legislator Rob Calarco will make a motion to Suffolk County to transfer the library property to Patchogue Village.
Patchogue Village will in turn transfer the land to Patchogue-Medford Library, who will be using the building for its Young Adult department when it is ready. No completion date has been announced yet.
