Floyd Memorial Library


The Floyd Memorial Library was chartered in 1907. The stone building was donated by Grace Floyd in honor of her father, David Gelston Floyd, in 1917.  In July of 1997, after approval by the voters, ground was broken for a $1.3 million expansion. The library dedication was held on May 22, 1999 and since then we have hosted many concerts, adult and children’s programs, and numerous activities. Floyd Memorial Library serves Orient, East Marion, and Greenport residents and tax-payers. We welcome card holders from all Suffolk County libraries. All visitors are welcome to in-library use of materials, computers and services.

The Floyd Memorial Library Local History Room has been an integral part of the library since its establishment with the donation of the current stone building by Grace Floyd in 1917.  It was stated in the agreement that the library must have a local history room to preserve the history of the area for years to come.  The department is dedicated to collecting, promoting, and
preserving the local history in the Greenport region. The collection consists of books, postcards, photographs, maps, audio visual material, pamphlets, scrapbooks, yearbooks, file folders of deeds and other Greenport-related documents.
