The History Center at the Port Washington Public Library is proud to announce the launch of a new digital portal, "Remembering 9/11." The portal will be available through the History Center website as an educational resource so that we may never forget the impact this devastating event had on our community.
You're invited to the Port Washington Library Foundation's fourth annual Inspiration Un-Gala. Harvesting for the Future: 32 Years of Growing the Library. Honoring Fern and Hersh Cohen. Visit www.PWLFoundation.com to learn more and donate.
The Library is committed to keeping everyone safe and we appreciate your cooperation in these efforts. PWPL strongly recommends that all patrons over the age of 2, regardless of vaccination status, wear a face covering when visiting the Library.
Did you know you can borrow and reserve special items from PWPL’s Library of Games and Gadgets? We have musical instruments, game consoles, electronic gear, nature items, and good old-fashioned lawn games available to borrow!
Reservation date is the pick-up date. Items are available to adult PWPL cardholders in good standing. A maximum of 3 items may be reserved up to 30 days in advance. Replacement fees will be charged for items not returned on time and borrowing privileges may be suspended. Use of these items are subject to Library discretion and approval. Express copies are also available on a first-come, first-served basis at the circulation desk.
Highlighting beautiful photographs from our Local History Collection, the Along Manhasset Bay Photography Exhibit is a visual exploration of the rich maritime history of Port Washington. On display through this summer in the PWPL Columns Gallery.
