On Friday, the South Ozone Park branch of Queens Public Library reopened for the community.
The library was closed for a $579,000 roof replacement project.
Councilwoman Adrienne Adams joined Queens Public Library CEO and President Dennis Walcott for a special story time with local students, as well as free giveawas.
“Public libraries are community spaces where residents of all ages can expand their horizons,” Adams says. “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.”
