In addition, patrons can access wifi 24 hours a day from the Library’s reading patio, porch, parking lot and memorial benches.  The East Islip Public Library and Islip Public Library also extended their hours to serve patrons.  The East Hampton Public Library served coffee while the Cutchogue Library served tea.   The Bridgehampton Public Library has allowed patrons to set up their home desktop computers. The Mastics Moriches Shirley Public Library served hot chocolate, coffee and tea, waived all overdue fines, ran movies all day long, and is helping those that need information or instructions on filing forms online with FEMA, banks, and insurance companies.
