The library’s special summer service for Port’s commuters is back. The Port Washington Public Library (PSPL) will be on-site at the Port Washington train station every Wednesday morning (weather permitting) from 7 to 9 a.m. through September 9. To help make your commute more enjoyable, a collection of popular paperbacks will be available for you to borrow.PWPLAtLIRR_071515A

The service began as a community outreach program in the summer of 2000. This satellite location was established to serve the public from a convenient location in the center of town during the library’s renovation project. Now in its fifteenth year, this seasonal service is enjoyed by many commuters.

You don’t need your library card to borrow books, and you may keep them for 14 days. When you’re finished, just return the books to the library table at the station on Wednesday mornings throughout the summer or to the library. Library-card applications are available and reserves can be taken for items to be picked up at the main library. Also ask us about downloading library books and audiobooks straight to your phone, tablet or e-reader.

Special thanks to the Friends of the Library for supporting this innovative program. For more information, contact Jean Bennett at 516-883-4400, ext. 119.
