Hicksville did not have a public library until 1926. By that year, the need for one was strong, and a public meeting, initiated by Arthur Crossley and other civic-minded citizens, was held at the high school to establish a library and elect a Board of Trustees. The first Board of Trustees was composed of Dr. Bernard Webster, Chairman; Mrs. Charles Voight, Secretary and Treasurer; Mrs. A. Van Slyke, Miss Louise Augustin and Miss Emily Fippenger. The very first library board meeting was held on August 12, 1926
