Two more trustees named to Queens Library

Two more trustees were named to the board of the Queens Borough Public Library this week.

Queens Borough President Melinda Katz appointed Lenore Gall, who before she retired served as dean of students and academic services at New York City College of Technology.

This will be Gall’s second round as a trustee for the library. A Queens resident, she served on the board for nearly three years beginning in 2005.

Mayor Bill de Blasio named James M. Haddad, a litigation attorney with a long track record of community service in Forest Hills. He helped to found the Kidz Care Junior Civic Association.

Katz and de Blasio fired six trustees of the library after the board refused to remove the president, Thomas Galante, whose performance had come under criticism by the city comptroller and

other senior elected officials.
