Memories of Islip Hamlet

“Memory is more than a dustbin of time, stuffed with yesterday’s trash. Rather, memory is a glorious grab bag of the past from which one can at leisure pluck bittersweet experiences of times gone by and relive them.”

Hal Boyle, 1971 

Do you have interesting tidbits, life changing experiences, or fond memories of Islip Hamlet? Join us in remembering the history of Islip Hamlet from the community’s perspective by sharing a memory. Tell us about big events in Islip, businesses and business owners on Main Street, interactions at Islip Schools,interesting happenings around town, evenings at the Islip Speedway, natural disaster experiences, or simply share some fun historical facts about our community.

Memories can be viewed and shared at the display case located across from the Circulation Desk starting in the beginning of March. Memories will be rotated in and out bi-weekly or monthly based on number of submissions we receive. If you have a photograph to go along with your memory, please submit that as well. We will scan and return the original photo to you. If you don’t have a photograph to share, we will include one from the Library’s collection.

Memories shared with the Library will be placed on display, preserved, and may be included in future projects as well. Submission forms can be found by the display case; leave forms in drop box or hand them in at the Reference Desk. For more information, please feel free to speak with me, or with another librarian at the Adult Reference Desk.

Help us remember and be remembered! Thanks!
