Carnegie Library on the Move July24th/25th...Watch happen with the Friends.

Enjoy some great local music, grab a coffee and watch the the incredible site of the Carnegie Library on the move. Activities begin Tuesday, July 24th at Roast on Main Street.

Hello All,

As was announced last week, Tritec will be moving the Carnegie Library to a temporary location in an effort to make sure the building is saved and preserved. The move will be taking place Midnight, Tuesday July 24th into Wendensday July 25th. The move needs to be done overnight as to avoid traffic and other logistical concerns.

When we formed the Friends of the Carnegie Library in November our primary goal was to make sure the historic building was not demolished. We should all now take pride that the voice of the community has been heard and the Library will be moved so an effort to preserve the building for future use continues.

Obviously we have reason to celebrate this occasion, and besides, the spectacle of seeing this building move will be an unforgettable event we may never see the likes of again in Patchogue.

With this in mind Roast Coffee and Tea on Main Street has agreed to stay open until 11:30 pm on July 24th as a gathering place for those interested to see this happen.  The Friends will be setting up an information booth at Roast that night to help inform the public of current activities and collect donations to use towards renovation efforts. Lucky for us the 24th is also Roast's Open Mic night so come as early as you can anytime after 7:30pm, enjoy great music, refreshments and be recharged to have an "all nighter" with the Friends of the Carnegie Library.

We suggest that you park your vehicles at the County Court House parking lot on the corner of West and Main Street and walk to Roast and the Four Corners from there that evening. It is only a 3 min walk from the Court House to Roast. In this way you will be near your vehicle once the move is complete. 

Also, look forward for a more formal celebration reception from the Friends in the very near future. We want to make sure the building is moved safely first before we officially schedule this, but some tentative plans are being discussed for mid to late August.

I look forward to see you all on the 24th.

I'm not accusing anyone of "faking it". http://www.coachoutletonlinegg.com My point is that our Pompeii - like most classical http://www.coachoutletonlineaol.net sites, in fact - is the product of collaboration between http://www.coachfactoryoutletwy.com modern rebuilders and conservators, and the original Roman builders http://www.coachoutletstorefc.com themselves, with the lion's share of the work on our side.And it's no less impressive or moving http://www.coachoutletaol.org for that - as the body casts help to show.One of http://www.coachfactoryonlineest.net the video clips played in the exhibition at the Getty Museum comes http://www.coachfactoryoutletpst.com from Roberto Rossellini's film, Voyage in Italy, in which the lead couple, http://www.coachfactoryoutlettx.com played by Ingrid Bergman and George Sanders, tour the country as their marriage http://www.coachfactoryonlinefc.org disintegrates.On their visit to Pompeii they watch the plaster being http://www.coachoutletwy.com poured into a cavity left by two of the victims. http://www.coachoutletonlineybw.com In the movie's most haunting scene, these victims emerge as a couple.
