Dromm Stands Up For Libraries
Councilmember Daniel Dromm joined members of the community at the Jackson Heights Library to rally in support of funding necessary to maintain library jobs and services. Queens Library is currently facing devastating cuts that would reduce library service to the lowest levels ever and layoff hundreds of staff members who provide critical information services to the community. Dromm stressed the importance of having a place where people can access research materials, use computers, attend programs, get homework help and ask for job information. Queens Library serves a population of 2.3 million in the most ethnically diverse county in the U.S.
