The Riverhead Free Library’s website is down this morning and library officials say they are not sure why — or when the page will be back up.

Library Director Lisa Jacobs said the page might have been hacked.

The public can check the library’s Twitter and Facebook accounts for alerts as to when the page is back up.

“I’m waiting to hear from our network administrator,” she said.

The image that displays when clicking on the library’s URL is something that frequently appears as a placeholder website, or a website that displays while a page is being created.

“It’s possible there was an issue with our domain name,” Ms. Jacobs said.
