Syosset Public Library (SPL)
The Syosset Public Library (SPL) is truly a garden of wonders—the gateway to a multitude of exciting materials, programs, and services for people of all ages. There are traditional print items, music and books on CD, and movies in DVD and Blu-Ray formats. In the Library of Things, you’ll find many non-traditional items, including video games and game consoles, wrench and drill bit sets, binoculars, a karaoke machine, a laminator, streaming devices, mobile hotspots, and more.
With an SPL card, you can check out eReaders loaded with popular titles, telescopes for gazing at the night sky, Launchpads (secure learning tablets for children), and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math)-inspired maker kits. Or visit more than 30 museums, gardens, and historic sites in Nassau, Suffolk, and New York City through the Museum Pass Program.
An SPL card also provides round-the-clock access to a fast-growing collection of digital materials. You can download a new novel, stream an independent film, practice a new language, look up an article in Consumer Reports, or get business and finance information—all available 24/7. Weekdays after school, children can contact a live, online tutor for help with almost any subject at any grade level, and teens can access Princeton Review ACT and SAT prep materials
When at the library, you’ll find plenty of spots for quiet study or collaboration, and a children’s learning center outfitted with many imaginative toys. And don’t forget to stop at the café to purchase a snack, including coffee, tea, juice, soda, fresh sandwiches, and yogurt. There are also tablets, laptops, desktop computers, and printers to use while in the building. If you wish, you can even send your job to the printer wirelesesly from any location.
The library also offers many on site programs. Stay fit with an exercise class, learn to cook, do a craft, or attend a lecture or concert. If you’re a non-native speaker, register for an ESL (English as a Second Language) class. Bring your children in for craft, storytime, coding, and other programs. And watch for major events, such as Sy-Con, a pop culture convention for fans of all ages, and Bricks Rock, a LEGO fan extravaganza.

Raccoons are protected by law. No one may possess a raccoon without a license, and licenses are not issued for pet wildlife. Hunting or trapping raccoons requires a license. The law allows unlicensed homeowners to destroy raccoons that damage property. However, property owners should try eliminating food and shelter before killing the animal.
Here are some ways to prevent raccoons from becoming a nuisance:
- Do not leave pet food outside. Feed pets only as much as they will eat at once, and remove all leftovers. If necessary, place pet feeders in an enclosed area such as a porch, garage, or barn.
- Keep garbage bags in an entry-way or garage, and in a metal can. Run a rubber strap, rope, or soft wire through the lid and attach to the can handles. To make it hard for raccoons to remove lids, hang the can one foot above the ground or use a rack and secure the cans upright.
- Surround gardens with an electric fence made up of two wires attached to an insulated post: one wire four inches and the other eight inches above the ground. Install the fence before vegetables ripen.
- Block the openings raccoons are using to get into your attic, porch, or other location. Place a temporary cover when the raccoons leave on their nightly search for food, and make a permanent seal later. To check if the raccoons have really left, sprinkle twigs, grass, or flour in the opening and watch for tracks. Caution: do not permanently seal entrances without first verifying that all animals are out of the den. Especially in the spring, look and listen for animal noises.
- Nuisance wildlife control persons licensed by New York State can be hired to deal with problem raccoons. Click here for a list of DEC Licensed Nuisance Wildlife Control Operators (NWCOs). Note that Nuisance Wildlife Control Operators are private business owners licensed by DEC to handle and remove wildlife issues in and around your home. NWCOs charge a fee for their services. Before hiring, follow the same measures you would when contracting with anyone to work around your home.

Deer play vital roles in the natural and cultural environment of New York and are highly valued for their beauty and grace as well as the utilitarian benefits they provide. However, the abundance of deer in many parts of the state is causing increasing problems, particularly in suburban and urban areas.
