The Community Library also contracts with the Eastport/South Manor Central School District. Residents of this district are eligible to join one of their four local libraries. Residents may apply in person to the library of their choice for a library card, which is valid for one year. The service year begins on July 1 and runs through June 30 of the following year. Residents of the Eastport/South Manor Central School District vote each year to approve or disapprove public library service.

Please report a lost or stolen library card to the Circulation Department immediately. This will ensure that another individual cannot use your card. There will be a $1.00 charge for replacing your library card initially, followed by a $2.00 charge each occurrence thereafter.
