Van Bramer Funds ‘Teen Room’ at Woodside Library

Oct. 21, 2011 Staff Report

Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer announced Tuesday that he is allocating $125,000 of city funding to create a “teen reading room” at the Woodside library.

Van Bramer said the funding will help carve out an area for young adults that will include an area with the latest technology.  He said he aims to make the space more appealing to teens.

Teens are among the most avid library-users, Van Bramer said in a statement. More than 80% of teens visit their library each year.

Van Bramer also plans to provide funding to libraries throughout his council district, which includes Sunnyside and Long Island City.
