Seaford, NY - August 10, 2018 - Senator John Brooks helped secure nearly $500,000 in state aid to help local libraries undertake essential construction and renovations. The state funds were secured thanks to Senator Brooks’ advocacy and determination to ensure Long Island libraries and communities receive the investment they deserve.
“When I was first elected in 2016, I pledged to get results for my constituents and to work tirelessly to ensure my community started getting its fair share from Albany,” Senator John Brooks said. “I am very pleased that my efforts helped secure additional education aid and additional library construction aid. I will keep up the fight to serve Long Island, implement real tax relief plans, and to make sure we get the state support, investment, and funding we deserve.”
The nearly $500,000 secured by Senator John Brooks will go to five local libraries and will help offset construction and renovation expenses. These five libraries include the Freeport Memorial Library, the North Bellmore Public Library, the Roosevelt Public Library, the Wantagh Public Library, and the Baldwin Public Library. These state resources build on the recently disbursed $500,000 in additional state education aid that Senator Brooks secured for four schools in the 8th Senate District.
