Sag Harbor’s Library Opens a New Chapter

“The library in Sag Harbor has always functioned as more than a place to store books.From its start in 1910, the John Jermain Memorial Library has been a cultural and community center in the former whaling village on the East End of Long Island. The first library director, Olive Pratt Young, offered English classes for immigrant workers. She bought a Victrola and held music nights in the building’s grand rotunda.Last weekend, the building, designed in the Classical Revival style, reopened after a four-year restoration and expansion with its missions intact. The finished product illuminates Sag Harbor’s past while embracing the modern role libraries play in their communities.” (via WSJ)
