Community members of all ages came down to Main Street on Saturday morning to take part in the book brigade that was part of the opening ceremonies for the newly renovated John Jermain Memorial Library in Sag Harbor.
As the book brigade progressed, a large crowd gathered outside the library waiting for its arrival.
Catherine Creedon, the director of the John Jermain Memorial Library, held up the book “Sag Harbor: The Story of an American Beauty” by Dorothy Ingersoll Zaykowski, which arrived at the library after being passed hand-to-hand during a "book brigade" by residents who lined up starting at the library's temporary home on Water Street.

Caitlin McSweeney, left, and Emily Glass, both Pierson Middle and High School students, said they are looking forward to spending tons of time at the newly renovated John Jermain Memorial Library.
Less than half an hour after the library's doors reopened, families could already be seen taking advantage of the revamped children's room.
