Special Collections of the Syosset Library

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

In this large library we have numerous special collections. The first floor caters to the popular items and includes the “Stars” the hottest new dvd’s and books.  It also houses our “World Languages Collection”, “Large Print” and “Oversized Pictorial books”.  Cookbooks and Travels books are located on the main floor.  In the back by the elevators is my favorite, our Art Gallery, which changes monthly.

Our second floor fiction area has some interesting collections.  They include “New Adults” for the 18 to 25 crowd, “Crossovers” fiction enjoyed by teens and adults alike and “Adult Graphic Novels”.  And of course our “Staff Picks”, the favorite books of SPL staff.

On the third floor, home to non-fiction books, has “Health Reference Center”, “Business and Career Area” and books for computers and digital devices.  We also have a display for recent non-fiction, currently including some of the best non-fiction for 2015.  The third floor has the Teen Space and our new “Creation Station”.
