The historic Carnegie Library is now officially owned by a library again.

Patchogue-Medford Library has received ownership of the building from Patchogue Village at Monday night's Village Board of Trustees meeting. Patchogue-Medford Library previously used the building until 1981, when they moved to Main Street.

The Carnegie Library, which was vacant on Lake Street, was moved in 2012 to the Sixth District Court property at 150 W. Main St. to make room for the New Village at Patchogue project at the Four Corners.

Now that the building is back in the hands of Patchogue-Medford Library, the library board will be discussing the building at Wednesday's Library Board of Trustees meeting at 5:30 p.m. at the library's 54-60 E. Main St. location in the Board Room. Harold Trabold, the board's president, said at Monday's meeting that they would be planning on approving the agreement with the village, and having a presentation.

The library has previously said that they plan to move the Young Adult department into the building.
