A $1 million allocation by Councilman Paul Vallone will go towards interior renovations and technology upgrades to the Queens Library Bay Terrace branch.


The Queens Library’s Bay Terrace branch is set for a makeover.

The library will see interior renovations and technology upgrades thanks to a $1 million allocation by Councilman Paul Vallone.

Vallone plans to officially announce the funding on Monday, when he’ll be joined by community leaders and residents for a visioning session. During that time, a Queens Library representative will highlight recent upgrades to other modern branches and children from a Bay Terrace library program will have the opportunity to draw what they think the branch should look like.

“I was overwhelmed by the state of neglect and lack of financial support that my district’s libraries have suffered through for years,” Vallone said. “My funding allocation will go a long way to improve and modernize the Bay Terrace Library so that the community can enjoy it for years to come.”
