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 dollar 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.

Make a Difference
Floyd Memorial Library is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization, supported in major part by the tax dollars of the residents of Greenport, East Marion and Orient. We gladly accept donations in memory of, or in honor of, your friends or relatives. We will dedicate a book to that purpose.
We also have a building fund, a collection of books in memory of a young patron who is no longer with us, and several other funds for which we accept donations.
If you would like to donate for general purposes, please see our Friends of the Library page, and make your donation to them. Their mission is to advocate for library funding, programs, and collections, as well as library events.
