Library History - Phipps Era, 1952-1984

Note:  Patchogue Library first extended its services to Medford residents in 1950, by individual contract.   In 1973, following the school district's lead, the Library changed its name to The Patchogue-Medford Library, by state charter amendment.  Full services were at that time extended to all Medford residents, without need of a separate contract.
