The Great Neck Library is now a member of the LI LINK Consortium, which is composed of public libraries in Nassau and Suffolk Counties to facilitate resource sharing among 107 Long Island public libraries. As a result, the amount of material available to Great Neck patrons has dramatically increased. We now have access to the collections (including media) of all Nassau and Suffolk public libraries.
