After undergoing a $1.2 million, six month renovation, the East Elmhurst Branch of the Queens Library system reopened with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Saturday, November 7 at its 95-06 Astoria Boulevard location.

The extensive renovation included customer service improvements, a new young adult/teen area and a new media center.

On hand to celebrate, from left to right, were Queens Borough President Helen Marshall, Director of the East Elmhurst Library Jonnie Dent, Assemblymember Jeffrion Aubry, Queens Library Director Tom Galante, and Councilmember Julissa Ferreras.

During her tenure, the Borough President, a founder of the Langston Hughes Library in Corona, has also allocated – in addition to the $1.2 million – $ 770,000 for acquisition of the land adjacent to the East Elmhurst library to eventually expand the existing branch.

Since coming into office in 2002, Marshall has allocated more than $81 million to borough libraries.
