The Smithtown Library
The Smithtown Library is a cornerstone of the community, dating back to 1907, when materials were housed in Judge Lawrence Smith's law office. The first permanent library building opened in 1912, and that building was moved across the street to it Flag as Inappropriate
History was made on November 6, 2001, when Smithtown residents cast their ballots in a town-wide referendum, and chose by a large margin to separate from the Town of Smithtown and become an independent Library. History was once again made on April 30, 2002. On that day, The Smithtown Library Special District held its first Budget Vote and Trustee Election. Residents elected a seven member Board of Trustees. This new governing board took office on July 1, 2002. The residents that serve on the Board are all volunteers. Their terms of office are three years in length. The Library Director works closely with the Board of Trustees in governing the Library System which is the largest on Long Island and ranks tenth largest in the State of New York.
