Sag Harbor is tending to its bookish roots. The legendary literary haven is now home to a new and expanded John Jermain Memorial Library. The facility, which closed in 2012 for a $16.5 million renovation, is now 7,000 square feet larger, has more parking and a new humidity and temperature-controlled historic archive. No doubt literary luminaries like John Steinberg and James Fenimore Cooper, who penned some of their most famous works in Sag Harbor, would be proud. [East Hampton Star] — Cathaleen Chen
