When the Glen Oaks Library celebrated the grand opening of its new facility on Sept. 2, three generations of the same family came together.
Thankamma Thampi, left, her daughter, Sharlene Thampi, and Sharlene’s sons, Mathew Kurian, 3, and Melvin Kurian, 4, all visited the new library.
The daughter explained that she remembered her mother taking her to the old library as a child and she wanted to pass the literacy legacy along. More than 1,300 members of the community attended the grand opening event.
The original branch was also located at 256-04 Union Turnpike.
