Assembly Member Barnwell Secures 75K For Neighborhood Libraries

NYS Assembly Member Brian Barnwell has secured $75,000 for the neighborhood libraries in his Assembly district. The grant will be split among the Woodside, Maspeth, Middle Village, and Broadway Astoria branches.

Last week, Barnwell was joined by Queens Library President and CEO Dennis M. Walcott, Woodside branch staff, and neighborhood parents and children as Barnwell presented a check for $75,000 to the Queens Library. “I am thrilled to have been able to secure $75,000 for the libraries that my constituents use. The libraries of the 21st century not only provide people with great books, but host and provide valuable community-based services. They are vital for all communities and I am glad to have been able to help our local libraries,” said Assembly Member Barnwell.

“We are grateful for Assemblyman Barnwell’s support of our mission to transform people’s lives, and look forward to working with him to make the most of this investment,” said Queens Library President and CEO Dennis M. Walcott.
