Island Trees Public Library


Although Island Trees is not an official town, its residents take pride in the area they reside in.  Island Trees is a portion of Levittown that remained open land for farmers in the 17 th century when Quakers settled in this area. As the centuries progressed, Island Trees became more established as a community. With the growth of the area, the Island Trees School District was formed in 1902 and eventually, the Island Trees Public Library was formed in 1966 due to the outstanding efforts of local parents. Since its inception in 1966, the library has continued to progress and become a community center that serves the members of School District No. 26.

It is the mission of the Island Trees Public Library to be an integral part of the community, meeting the educational, informational, cultural and recreational needs of the community that we serve. To best achieve this, the library supports the continuous training and development of library staff. Our well trained staff provides programs, services and materials in a multitude of formats to meet the needs of people with varying backgrounds, and of all age groups, within our diverse population, drawing people into the library as a focal point in the community.

Island Trees Public Library is a member of the Long Island Library Resources Council.
