I'm not sure where the previous poster lives but Elmont is not an "extremely low income area". Try Bushwick or Bed Stuy, Brooklyn if you want to know what low income is. There are houses in Elmont that go for 400k. Hardly low income. As for the crime, again, I guess the opinion is relative to what you are used to.I've never had a problem in 20 years here. Maybe your opinion is based on "appearances". The library itself is decent but due to it's size the selection is small. The staff is friendly and the overall atmosphere is comfortable.I'v been there a few times and it's been pretty busy surprisingly. If your looking for science fiction novels or children's books it a good place to checkout if you don't have many options.

Currently this is a small library with limited resources, but there us a new facility being built down the block that looks impressive. The nee facility is more than twice the size of the present building and includes an auditorium. The staff at the current location are friendly and helpful.

The Elmont Public Library is located on Elmont Road in a lousy area. It is in an extremely low-income, high-crime area. It really is a shame, as this library has so much to offer. There is a terrific children's section here which offers great programming to kids and families. The collection is vast and the resources are many. Several of the librarians are bilingual. Plus, there is a terrific pizza place right down the block.

The parking lot is difficult to find-- It is behind the library and not accessible from the main road. You have to turn before the library-- just follow the signs.

PROS: good programs, great collection, awesome resources
CONS: lousy location
