Upcoming Program Series

stamina   

 
2017 marks the 100th anniversary of the United States’ entry into World War I.  Throughout the year, The Smithtown Library will host various programs and events in remembrance of this historic date with a program series titled World War I and America.    In addition, The Smithtown Library’s Long Island Room will present a corresponding program series titled Long Island at War, dedicated specifically toward examining Long Island’s participation in the nation’s war efforts since World War I.  A complementary Long Island Room exhibit will be on view throughout the year.  The Smithtown Library invites you to partake in these programs and events to commemorate the importance of America’s involvement in World War I and gain a deeper understanding of our veterans’ experiences over time.  
 

Staff Pick

Dead Wake
Dead Wake by Erik Larson
Setting sail on May 1, 1915, The Lusitania was a monument to the hubris and ingenuity of the age. Erik Larson ushers us aboard the ship as it begins its tragic and final crossing of the Atlantic Ocean. Along the way, Larson paints a portrait of America at the height of the Progressive Era and captures the sheer drama and emotional power of a disaster whose intimate details and true meaning have long been obscured in the mists of history.
