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.

- Patchogue Library Card Catalog, ca. 1967 - Note: Many people born after the mid-1980's may have never seen or used a card catalog. The main sections of it contained cards (some with additional notations) arranged separately by author, by title, and by subject. (You could tell what topics or authors were the most popular and heavily used by how dark and worn the tops of the cards became. It was a standard joke among librarians, that "Sex" was always dirtiest subject, literally.) Developments and improvements in online catalogs put the old card catalog out of business, except as an historical curiosity, or as something in which to store odds and ends. The Local History Room has retained the room's (small) former card catalog, purely as an historical example.
