Council Member Adrienne Adams Celebrates South Ozone Park Library Reopening
South Ozone Park, New York—On Friday, October 25th, Council Member Adrienne Adams, in conjunction with the Queens Public Library, celebrated the reopening of the South Ozone Park Library. The branch reopens following a much needed $579,000 roof replacement project. This project will ensure the resilience of the structure of this popular branch that has fostered intellectual curiosity for so many years.
Council Member Adrienne Adams, Queens Public Library President and CEO Dennis Walcott and local community leaders celebrated the grand reopening with a special storytime for local students, conducted by Council Member Adams, and free giveaways for attendees.
“Public libraries are community spaces where residents of all ages can expand their horizons,” said Council Member Adrienne Adams. “I am proud to have provided funding for this important project. The community has eagerly anticipated the reopening of the South Ozone Park Library and I could think of no better way to celebrate than sitting down with local youths for storytime.”
“Queens Public Library is committed to creating safe, welcoming spaces that inspire our customers to pursue knowledge, information or a path to new opportunities,” said Queens Public Library President and CEO Dennis M. Walcott. “As we celebrate the reopening of our South Ozone Park branch, we are grateful to Council Member Adrienne Adams for allocating capital funds to replace the roof, allowing the community to continue benefiting from our resources, including early literacy programs, such as this storytime.”
