Two libraries on the North Fork will host seminars for homeowners and those looking to buy their first home.

On Thursday, March 15, the Riverhead Free Library will host a seminar for first-time homebuyers from 6 to 8:30 p.m. The Community Development Cooperation of Long Island will provide ownership planning, counseling and grant information. A local realtor, attorney and mortgage account officer will guide attendees through the buying process.

For more information, call the library, 631-727-3228, ext. 100.

Earlier in the week, the Floyd Memorial Library in Greenport will host “Prospering Through Cooperative Homeownership,” through the Sustainable Housing Network, on Tuesday, March 13, at 6:30 p.m.

Group activities include regular gatherings to discuss common visions and goals, inviting local professionals to provide information on converting single-family homes to two-family housing, and forming partnerships to buy properties suitable for more than one household.
