“Thanks to this investment, the kids that go to school in this community will get the most high quality services as a result of your support and our electeds’ support,” Walcott said to members of the Friends of South Hollis Library.
Mardochee Estimable, president of Friends of South Hollis said, echoed those sentiments, saying, “Queens Library at South Hollis is a second home to many and the most important place in our community. Children, teens, adults come every day. It’s a safe place for kids to go after school, and to spend time doing their homework, reading and making friends. Our future seems much brighter with this news.”
The renovations are scheduled to cost $8.25 million, with $3 million allocated by the borough president in the current fiscal year and the remaining $5.25 million to be covered in fiscal year 2018. Construction is expected to begin in 2019, with completion date scheduled for 2022.
