Friends of The Smithtown Library Meetings

Although all our meetings are open to the public, the Executive Board Meetings are for the purpose of conducting the business of the governing board and for preparing for the upcoming General Membership Meetings. Our General Membership Meetings are held to conduct business that relates to the membership at-large and to provide an opportunity for people who are interested in the library to establish a closer relationship. Come and visit with us, or join us and become a member.
