Queens Library President and CEO Tom Galante, left, and City Councilmember Donovan Richards are joined by 8-year-old Sasha-Lee Elliott on May 29 as they updated community officials on the ongoing progress of renovations at the Rosedale Library.
When completed the building will have a new heating, ventilation and air-conditioning system; a new ceiling with improved, energy-efficient lighting fixtures as well as a number of cosmetic changes.
Richards secured $750,000 to help fund the project. The library is expected to reopen to the public this fall.
The Rosedale Library is located on 243rd Street.
