The library has several services to help you with filing your income taxes. We have a large selection of forms that are available to you. You will find them in the library’s side stairwell. If you don’t find the form you need there, a Reference Librarian will get you a form to copy from our reproducible book or from the Internet. We also have commercial tax guides for you to borrow from our New Book collection.
The East Islip Library offers a Homebound Service to our patrons who are unable to visit the library due to a temporary or permanent illness or disability. Homebound patrons will be able to choose titles from the library's large print and regular book collections.
Application and approval is necessary to qualify for this service, which is free of charge. If you have any questions about the details of this service, or if you would like an application, please contact Jo-Ann Carhart at 581-9200 ext. 5.

LOCAL HISTORY CORNER
The East Islip Public Library and the East Islip Historical Society (EIHS) are proud to promote the use of the new Local History Room (LHR) located in the lower level of the library.
In the LHR you will find the comprehensive Bob Muller collection of lighthouse materials, the library’s collection of books and materials on Long Island and New York State, the library’s collection of microfilm and microfiche and the East Islip Historical Society’s collection of photos, historical objects, oral histories and more.
Starting in January, volunteers from the EIHS will be staffing the room on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 2-4 p.m. Be sure to visit the LHR and chat about the history of our community with a local expert.
