Re “No pre-K at libraries,” Letters, July 3:
Queens Library is very proud to be launching a universal prekindergarten class at Queens Library at Woodhaven. It is a wonderful opportunity to bring additional quality early-childhood education into the community, in one of the best places a child can be: the neighborhood library.
Even with the addition of the UPK program, the community will continue to have a full schedule of programming and will continue to be the hub of the community, offering ESOL, music programs, book discussions and the much-beloved children’s programs. Work will soon be underway to create newly renovated space that will become additional program space. That work will be coordinated to ensure the program calendar will continue as scheduled with the least disruption possible. All the familiar programs will be available, plus some new offerings as the year goes on. Included will be the addition of iPad minis that will be used for special technology programs.
The new program space plus the renovated UPK area will complement the main floor renovation that was completed last year.
Please join us in celebrating Queens Library at Woodhaven, as it truly becomes a place for lifelong learning. Toddlers, students, adults and seniors: There is a special place for you at Queens Library.
