Riverhead Free Library has made history on Long Island.

It has launched a program its backers appropriately call RiverHope, which allows people who are part of the Maureen’s Haven homeless outreach program to receive library cards. This is important because it offers people without a fixed address access to all that the library has to offer — the ability to check out and read books, use of the library’s computers for email and job searches, but also access to a wide range of library programs, including an online educational forum called Universal Class.
